Post travels to Great Britain


Earlier this fall, Kathleen Zersen (Heiss) picked up a Post and tucked it away in her suitcase to travel with her on a six-week trip to Great Britain. 

“I started out at London, England, then went to Scotland, Ireland, and Wales,” said Kathleen. “What a beautiful trip.”

She traveled with a friend from Arizona, Diana Yarbrough, who is from England.

Kathleen loved taking her trip, and wished she’d done it sooner. Her travel tip? “Travel while you’re young!” she said.

Thanks so much for taking us with you!

Post travels to Rocky Mountains


The Post traveled to the top of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, 11,800 feet, well above the timberline, with Mary Ann Misner and John Cornell, both of Cedar Springs. This was part of their two and a half week trip exploring the Rocky Mountain region – from Mount Rushmore, South Dakota, to Salt Lake City, Utah, to northern Red Lodge, Montana, to Durango, Colorado.

They drove over several mountain passes that were above 10,000 feet, including the million dollar highway of Durango through the mining towns of Silverton and Ouary. One of the hightlights of the trip was watching a horseback rider and two dogs on top of a mountain above the timberline in northern Wyoming, herding a large herd of sheep (approximately 500) across the road in front of them. They also saw wild mustangs in Montana before traveling over Bear Tooth Pass into Yellowstone National Park, and about 200 buffalo in the park. Arches National Park was also beautiful, with the evening sun shining on the arches.

The most dangerous part of the trip was dealing with a herd of free range cattle in the middle of the road after dark. Unlike our Michigan deer, their eyes didn’t shine in the headlights and they didn’t dash out of the way. The cattle have the right-of-way there, and if you hit one you have to pay the rancher. The cattle seemed to know this. At night time, they recommend driving slowly or not at all, if you ever have the chance to visit free range country in this beautiful area. 

Thanks so much for taking us with you!

Kim Gillow and Mary Balon, of Cedar Springs, met Claire Burbank and Terry Hardie, of Jacksonville, Florida, in Seattle to start a week-long adventure in the Canadian Rockies. They travelled by train to Vancouver then took the Canadian ViaRail overnight to Jasper, Alberta. They awoke to 6 inches of snow in the mountains. After a stop in Jasper to purchase boots and coats, they spent the next five days roaming the area, including a stay at Sunwapta Falls and a visit to the Columbia Ice Fields. The scenery was breathtaking, the food delicious and the people were warm and welcoming, they said.

Thank you, Kim and Mary, for taking us with you to the Canadian Rockies!

Post travels to Shipshewana


Hannah, 10, and her sister Hailey, 8, pose with The POST.

The Post recently traveled with the Dempsey family, of Solon Township, to Shipshewana, Indiana.

Hannah, 10, her sister Hailey, 8, mom Kathy, and grandma Joyce Petersen stayed over night at the Blue Gate Hotel, where they swam a lot. They had fun at the petting zoo, did lots of shopping at the flea market, and enjoyed lots of good food. They waited to go on a horse and buggy ride, but the line was too long, so they went back to their hotel, and lo and behold, a carriage was parked right in front of the hotel! So the girls got their Cinderella carriage ride after all!

Thanks so much for taking us with you!
