Autumn color abounds as we take you on a vacation you will never forget. We take a hike across treetops in an old growth forest and then end with a zip line down 300 feet from the top of the Niagara Escarpment. Along the way we will stop at the oldest brewery in Ontario.

To quote an old friend Curtis is a place in the U.P. that most people have never been to and don’t know much about, so “It won’t hurt us to go Curtis” Three large lakes with the same name Big Manistique, Little Manistique, and North Manistique. We will enjoy fishing, hiking and friends galore.
