Without fail, everyone we met along the way would ask: “Why would anyone live way up there in Michigan?” and the answer always seemed to start with:
Because Marquette is breathtaking.
Because Marquette has the best trails.
Because Marquette has great beer.
Because Marquette shares Lake Superior.
Because Marquette is home.
No matter how far we traveled, Marquette was with us. It was in the expressions we used, in the respect we had for the outdoors, in the love we had for the water and in the sense of community we felt everywhere we went.
