After checking out the fire bowls, we continued on with our ride towards the south. We were continuously amazed at the beauty of the parks along the lakeshore...just about all of Petoskey's lakefront is park after park, with the Little Traverse Wheelway winding through it. We saw a little waterfall along the way, beautifully constructed stairwells to the upper street levels, we saw new and well maintained rest stops with bathrooms along the way. The views of the lake are exceptional, and whoever planned this tremendous resource ought to be commended for how it's laid out, landscaped, the attention to details everywhere. The city of Petoskey is to be commended for how it's maintained. I could see living in this beautiful town full time if we weren't traveling..it seems like a really healthy place to be with the beautiful parks and trail for the residents and visitors. It's our last night here and I will miss this pretty town and great bike trail, but it's on to bigger and better vistas...there are many more beautiful places to explore in the U.S.A. and we can't wait to see them!
