Adventure In Michigan's Great Outdoors

When we started searching for a house to buy, we had one goal in mind: "out the back door and onto a trail".  Anything touching a State Rec Area, State Park, or Metro Park was game.  This is "our backyard": 5,000 acres of Rec Area in Metro Detroit.   Our dream! 

Our goal is to share our passion for the Michigan outdoors, especially the remote areas that are little traveled. 

We've explored much of Michigan through our love of Adventure Racing and Orienteering. 

There's a thrill that comes when you enter into the woods or set adrift on a river with a map and compass in hand. 

MI Backyard is our way of sharing that joy with others. 

It's a work in progress, so please continue to check back for updates as we explore Michigan.
