Grew up near Frankenmuth, now I live in Colorado. We rarely visit the mountains over here, live just 45 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. But a person usually goes Up North or to the mountains to relax and get away from the crowds. Only problem is that everyone else has the same idea. There's nothing relaxing about sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on I-75 or I-70. Visited Interlochen once, a real treasure.
