The original Upper Peninsula silhouette tee.
During a year-long 50-state road trip, I spent time learning about hometowns across America. At the same time, especially the further away I got from the Great Lakes region, the more people were eager to learn about the Great Lakes, Michigan, and the Upper Peninsula. I fell in love with this role of being an ambassador of the U.P. by telling people about the Upper Peninsula wherever I went.
I returned home to Baraga in 2007 inspired to continue this role. Having collected t-shirts in nearly all 50 states, I wanted an iconic t-shirt to represent my love for the Upper Peninsula. I set out to find a t-shirt with nothing but the silhouette of the Upper Peninsula on it. It was a different time then, and there was nothing to be found. So I set out to create it myself and launched Yooper Steez in January 2008 featuring the original Upper Peninsula silhouette series and a blog featuring Upper Peninsula content. Now, iterations of the design can be found in nearly every Upper Peninsula gift shop. Thanks for supporting the original.
