Get On the Water
Behind the Boat
We love to pull people on stuff behind the boat...two skis, one ski, wake boards, inner tubes, what else? We head to classic water ski resort White Birch Lodge to play with the possibilities.
S’Mores Gone Local

One Captain, One Crewman
Ross Lang was a commercial fishing legend, running his boat Joy out of the Leland harbor. Then, one tragic day, after a career in fishing, he drowned. We sit down with Brian Price, who fished with Ross for more than a decade, to get a sense for this remarkable northern character.

A bike is not just a bike on Mackinac Island. it’s a mobile expression of self, a pet, a friend, a piece of art...photographer and island summer resident Andrejka Hirschegger shares images and insight to reveal the secret world of bikes on Mackinac.
