Getting Out of My Comfort Zone (& into the Woods)
Getting Out of My Comfort Zone (& into the Woods)

My earliest travel memory was at about age three, when my family went camping at Leelanau State Park in Northport. According to my mother, it rained, the tent leaked, the “potty pot” tipped over inside the tent and we ended up sleeping inside our woody station wagon. I wish I could remember more of the details—like the Grand Traverse Lighthouse which sits within the park.

A Spirit Runs Through It
A Spirit Runs Through It

Michigan’s earliest residents lived off the land, drawing their sustenance from the woods, waters, fields and farms to nourish themselves. Iron Fish Distillery, located in the rural community of Thompsonville is digging back into those agricultural roots to craft artisan spirits inspired by the natural landscape.
