Pretty much any of the side streets in Detroit have interesting wildlife and rock crawler swallowing potholes.

Why do you have to be like that? Are you some sort of a tree hugging hippie?
















I agree with you 100% and it scares me that I agree with you.

I am sorry for not being as environmentally friendly as a Prius driver, Hancho. Please don't yell at me

This, Harbor Springs is my home town. I drive this road at least once a week. The Tunnel of Trees is amazing right now with all the color.

its not about being evironmentally friendly it's about the law:

Quote:
257.707 Muffler, engine, power mechanism, and exhaust system; requirements; prohibitions.

Sec. 707.

(1) A motor vehicle, including a motorcycle or moped, shall at all times be equipped with a muffler in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise and annoying smoke. A person shall not remove, destroy, or damage any of the baffles contained in the muffler, nor shall a person use a muffler cutout, bypass, or similar device upon a motorcycle or moped on a highway or street.

(2) The engine and power mechanism of a motor vehicle shall be so equipped and adjusted as to prevent the escape of excessive fumes or smoke.

(3) A motor vehicle shall at all times be equipped with a properly operating exhaust system which shall include a tailpipe and resonator on a vehicle where the original design included a tailpipe and resonator.
it seems as if many diesel truck owners don't understand this

Quote:
750.420 Motor vehicle; equipment with smoke or gas producing devices.

Sec. 420.

Motor vehicles equipped with smoke or gas producing devices—Any person who shall own, operate or have in his possession any motor vehicle equipped with a device for producing excessive smoke or gas, or so equipped as to permit oil or any other chemical to flow into or upon the exhaust pipe or muffler of such vehicle or in any other way to produce or emit smoke or dangerous or annoying gases from any portion of such vehicle other than the ordinary gases emitted by the exhaust of an internal combustion engine under normal operation, shall be guilty of a felony.

M-119 is cool. BUT, I would definitely go on a weekday if you can. I just drove it yesterday coming home from Wilderness State Park, and it was pretty busy with color seekers. Many oncoming cars don't understand they need to hug the white line, so it would be more enjoyable when less busy. When oncoming vehicles are both properly on the white line there's about 2-3 feet in between you on some of the sections.

If you do M-119, don't end your trip at Cross Village. Keep heading north up into Wilderness State Park. That stretch is a lot less busy, but also a really nice drive - curvy, hilly, nice views. Probably average around 35mph.

Some of my other favorites drives are between Grand Marais and Munising, nice smooth roads curving through the woods along Superior. As mentioned before anything going up the Keewenaw.

If you wanted to do a longer, maybe 2-day trip, a great drive would be to start at Manistee and take M-22 all along the coast, and then continue north on US-31 through Charlevoix, Petoskey, and then hit M-119.

Color report as of 10/7: it's seeming to go in waves from north to south. Manistee area should be peaking right about now. Traverse City area is definitely not peaking. Mancelona up to Kalkaska is beautiful and probably about peak. Petoskey north to Mackinaw (including the Tunnel of Trees) is not yet at peak.
