Da Yoopers Tourist Trap
Da Yoopers Tourist Trap in Ishpeming, Michigan. My photography travels are experiences. Exploration and if you can grab a few laughs along the way … memories are made. Nobody can ever take away your experiences. Everything else can be stripped away in a heartbeat. Your memories and experiences cannot be taken from you. Unless you suffer from dementia – and then you have picture proof 🙂
2nd Stop on Trip
This is the second stop on our no idea where we are going in Michigan getaway. Our first stop was a bathroom pit stop that yielded a two-hour hike at Canyon Falls.
Welcome to Yooperland!
I knew this place existed and always wanted to stop in.
Relax – enjoy – spend all your cash but please don’t move up here.
Strange ways to estimate time….
An old underground fire truck that used to service the mines.
Some Pretty Funny Stuff to See For Free
I have my eyes on you. Maybe this is why people get skunked deer hunting some years. The deer are watching YOU! Way too funny!
For those unfamiliar, this place is centered around a music group that has a few funny songs. The most notable song is The Second Week of Deer Camp.
The Tourist Trap plays into some of the songs and most certainly, the Yooper stereotypical way of life.
There is so much to see in this cabin and I was in stitches laughing. Is this how deer camp works husband?
There are a few bush buggies on the property that are pretty interesting. A bush buggy according to the sign it is anything made up of junk that ran.
A sign off in the woods let’s you know that the da lummakaka likes to eat children. Keep them close.
Gift Shop Sells Rocks & Gems
One interesting leg stretch. Oh, and the gift shop carries all kinds of rocks and gem stuff inside. They do have some interesting things including Lake Superior Agates 🙂 <—-Amazon link to see what I am talking about.
