2. When I go to the U.P....
I sometimes like to stay in the rustic cabins that they have at some of the state parks. They have no electricity, they're heated by wood stoves (you chop the wood), and the beds are like rocks, but they're still a couple of steps above tents. They cost about $60 per night. One of my favorites is the section 17 cabin in the Porcupine Mountains. The hike is only about 1.5 miles.
If you're going to be up in the NW UP, then Bond Falls is a MUST. It's the best waterfall in the U.P. and it's handicap accessible.
If you go to Copper Harbor, don't miss the Estivant Pines hike.
Personally, I like the wilderness areas like Sylvania and the McCormick tract. I would recommend a book titled 199 Michigan waterfalls to anybody looking for natural beauty in the U.P. I think 198 of the falls are in the U.P., and most of them are west of Marquette and north of Iron Mountain. I also love the Grand Sable sand dunes east of Grand Marais. Don't hike down though, because the hike back up is BRUTAL.
I've never spotted one, but I still like to go on the Moose tours in Marquette Co. The Peshekee river grade road is beautiful.
