Racing the Sun

Mexican Poppies bloomed in profusion throughout the Superstitions after the plentiful winter rains of 2008.

But I wasn’t able to answer my daughter question later about who was this man except for “He is some celebrity!” 🙂

I will continue with the State of Michigan, located in the northern Midwest of America. You can read an introduction to Michigan, here: Michigan USA ~ Welcome, in case you missed it. In that post, I explained how Michigan is actually two states and the only state like it.
