My family tried to get me to transport with them to Michigan years ago, as well as now I’m wondering why I held off for so long.
I was dead set on staying in the southwest despite what it was doing to our mental health.
The summers were downright irritated with 110 degree heat! On top of that, there’s a lot of radiation in the groundwaters out there from all of the incessant nuclear bomb testing that the US Government undertook while I was in the Cold War. It’s not that you can’t find scrub water in these areas, it’s just that you’re more likely to run into problems compared to a scrub water state adore Michigan. Swimming in a lake in Michigan for the first time was an amazing experience! There was little algae at the time as well as the water was crystal clear. I remember there being rocks on the bottom as well, which felt smooth at the bases of our feet. It didn’t take too much persuasion at this point to push me into leaving the southwest to transport to Michigan permanently. I didn’t choose just any random location in Michigan either, I went with Ann Arbor in Washtenaw County. Named for its gorgeous trees as well as vibrant naturalism, Ann Arbor is the gem of southern Michigan. The University of Michigan has its main campus downtown, with the school’s famous “Diag” being a hub as well as focal point of the entire city. Now that there is recreational cannabis in Michigan, I’m seeing modern cannabis dispensaries opening all over Ann Arbor as well as the rest of Washtenaw County. My favorite cannabis dispensary in Ann Arbor is located a few miles east of Gallup Park, which sits along the banks of the Huron River.
