ugh, i can’t believe the weekend is over. how annoying. summer weekends are just so nice! warm weather, hikes, relaxation – the best. i finally got the chance to go through the rest of my photos from our trip to marquette over the long fourth of july weekend. if you missed my previous post full of waterfalls, click here! this trip was honestly a dream for kylo. he got to go hiking, swimming and never slowed down! it was great.
if you don’t already know, marquette is one of my favorite places ever. i lived there for a few years while i was going to college, so it’s always so nostalgic when i get to go back and visit. unfortunately, that’s not as often as i would like.
the first place we went to was black rocks! not the brewery, but the actual rocks. you can go cliff jumping and it’s really awesome! we didn’t go to the side where you could jump off cliffs because we had kylo. dogs aren’t allowed on presque isle park, so we had to leave him in the car which sucked. so we made that stop short! most everything you do in marquette is dog friendly, except for presque isle park. honestly though, it’s so beautiful. you’re right at the edge of lake superior (my favorite of the great lakes) and it’s so calming.
after that we decided it was time to hike sugarloaf mountain! it was SO busy! i mean, i figured it would be busy because of the holiday, but it was almost overwhelming. kylo was super nervous the whole time, i felt bad! regardless, it was still an awesome hike. you cannot beat the view!
after our hike, we decided to take a break and chill on the beach. we headed to wetmore beach, which is my favorite one in marquette! it’s rarely busy so it’s super relaxing. there were other dogs there too and kylo wanted to play with them so bad. but he LOVED swimming here. he played fetch for honestly an hour straight in the water. it was great!
king of the mountain!
lol he was so happy
there you have it! that sums up my crazy one day in marquette.
there are SO many exciting things happening over the next few weeks. in two weeks we officially move into our new apartment and two weeks after that, we head to canada for our week long hiking trip! i’m super excited for it. i’m contemplating getting a gopro to document the adventure. i would have to get the cheapest one because i’m poor lol but it would be worth it.
pictures are amazing to look back on – obv or i wouldn’t have this blog – but i think video taping it as well would be even more special to look back on. who knows when i’ll get the chance to go back! and gopros are super easy because they’re lightweight and small and don’t require much work. we will see!
anyway, i will stop rambling now. thanks for reading!
