Have you ever heard of upper michigan? Did you know that MI is not just the "glove"?

I'm from upper mi and now i live in phx. no one seems to know that MI is actually not just the glove. there is another part of the state that is above wi. i also see tons of maps that show upper mi like its part of canada. just curious.

  • Now that I live in Michigan, I know now. But I have to say I didn't know beforehand. I haven't been up there. Also, the beaches are awesome on the west side.

  • I'm from California, live in Oregon and I knew that. I can see why some people don't notice; it does kinda look like its in Canada. Guess I just had a better geography teacher than most.
