The "Pot People" at Horseshoe Falls

A whimsical sort of guy with a great message!

A journal entry in retrospect as there wasn't any cell phone or Internet coverage at the campground last night. We got up early to try to beat the border crossing lines at the International Bridge that the people at the campground warned us about possibly encountering and got lucky as there were no lines. We drove right up to the US Customs booth for a very quick and smooth reentry. US 2 to Saxon was an easy drive with practically no traffic. Saw lots of rural Michigan Upper Peninsula but little else as there were not very many centers of population along the route. Stopped at a tourist trap known as Horseshoe Falls to see what they had...$10 later and about 15 minutes the tour was over. The falls were small but in a neat setting and they did discover a meteorite in the early 1900's at the bottom of the falls. We stopped at the Frontier RV Park and Campground at the junction of 2 and 169. A small CG with some nice sites but the facilities were outdated and the office was in the local bar at the gas station. Different but not a bad place for an overnighter. Our site was long and flat so we stayed hooked up to get an early get away for the drive to Grand Forks. Good thing that we did as a horrendous stormed rolled through and last most of the night - pouring rain and a lot of wind! Barbara didn't sleep very well with all of the movement and noise.
