I am absolutely addicted to my own home state of Michigan. We have mountains, (well, sort of) waterfalls, caves, cliffs, copper mines, virgin forests, beautiful lakes, rivers and streams... and of course, the great lakes as well. We have hundreds of historic lighthouses to explore, climb and photograph, as well as old fashioned paddle wheel river boats and tourist towns with fascinating histories. We Michiganians have the upper and lower peninsula and a map that we carry with us wherever we go in the form of a right hand. We have a couldn't-care-less attitude regarding cold weather and can drive in virtually any road conditions without much fear. So what about you? What is your favorite state, and it's okay if it's where you live.
