Marquette, MI--Traveling the Triple A from Marquette to Baraga yields beautiful natural sights this time of year.  During a trip along the Triple A on Memorial Day, we spotted complex spider webs, fluffy cattails, bounding deer, and soaring eagles.  It's about an hour drive along the Triple A from Marquette to our destination on Huron Bay, Skanee Location, in Baraga County.  The Triple A is in great shape this year.
