Overview -
Touring Michigan's Upper Peninsula (U.P.) is like taking a two-week trip by station wagon. Not in terms of time---you can sample plenty if four days is all you have.

It's home to about 320,000 hardy Yoopers (U.P.-ers), just 3% of Michigan's population across a third of the state's territory...
