I left before 6 AM Saturday morning while it was still dark. I was able to snap this shot of the sunrise while driving along I 39/90.
As mentioned, Copper was my traveling companion, but a quiet one. This was her "usual" position while we were on the road. It's a bit blurry, but I was driving when I took this. ;)
The further north I drove into Michigan, the more color I saw among the trees. The following photos were taken along 31 north of Muskegon before getting to the Ludington area (I think).
I ran into small squalls of light rain driving up through Michigan, too. I took this photo to show the clouds. I find them beautiful, yet somewhat ominous, too. The kids and I went out to dinner that night and when we came out of the restaurant, we had a rain/snow mix coming down. Thankfully, it didn't last very long. :)
I also had a few peeks of sun once and awhile, too. When it came out, the tree colors became more vibrant!
My trip continued tomorrow.......
