Barrison’s Travels: Michigan’s Upper Peninsula
When I invited Barrison to join me on a trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, she asked what she should wear. Hmmm….spring in the U.P.? That could be tricky! I told her it better be warm enough to handle snow, but light enough to be comfortable in the sun. And orange, definitely orange, because something’s always in season and you can never be too careful when you’re surrounded by woods! She decided to knit a hoodie for herself in Berroco Comfort. She named it Keweenaw after the region we were visiting.

Barrison and I flew to Michigan on May 9 and enjoyed a long weekend of sightseeing in (mostly) above-freezing weather. My friend Rebecca was nice enough to host us and Barrison really enjoyed hanging out with her adorable dog, Febea!
Having lived in the Keweenaw for two years, I had a list of must-sees for Barrison, including the Quincy Mine Shaft, the Snow Meter and Brockway Mountain. We started in Houghton and worked our way north to Copper Harbor. We only saw a few flurries along the way!
We hope you enjoy these photos from our trip!
Have you made a Barrison of your own? We’d love to see what your little bear is up to. You can tweet pictures to @berrocodesign with the hashtag #BarrisonBear or #BarrisonsTravels. Be sure to check back to see where Barrison travels next!
