Fife Lake Finale’

James and I recently went on a #PureMichigan vacation.

We set out to visit small towns along the west coast of Michigan, to fully embrace the reality in one of my favorite poems, as listed below:

The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROSTTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

James and I set out deliberately on a journey to visit the “unvisited” treasures between Holland and the Upper Peninsula.
Fife Lake, Michigan was the first gem that we discovered.
Lodging is available at Fife Lakeside Resort and Party Store if you desire an overnight stay where the locals are friendly, the town bursts with history, and the lake is tranquil.
Below are a few more photos that I took on our walking tour…after enjoying an ice cream cone at the Dairy Bar, of course!

If you want to see more, you will have to plan a trip to Fife Lake! 😉
