2012 Petoskey Calendar

NOTE: Effective 1/25 the supply of 2012 calendars has been exhausted. See beautiful images of the area via the Petoskey Area Facebook page.

The January calendar photo of Petoskey's Bear River is by Dominique McReynolds

I should be working on a project but my eyes keep drifting to the mesmerizing photo featured in the free wall calendar from the Petoskey Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Dominique McReynolds shot the moody picture of the Bear River, which runs through the city. It looks like a painting. I want to be there.

All of the images were contributed by talented Flickr Group photographers. The cover features a shot by photographer Buck Cash of the “Tunnel of Trees,” the two-lane M-119 between Petoskey and Cross Village (Forbes just named the route one of 4 Gorgeous Winter Drives For Car Nuts).

The 11″x17″ calendar is printed on smooth paper and has a nice month-at-a-glance format with lots of white space for jotting notes. It also tips you off to area festivals and major events each month.

To nab one of the remaining copies of the calendar:

– visit the Petoskey Area website and click on the FREE calendar button
– go to the Petoskey Area Facebook page (be sure to become a fan while you’re there)
– email your request and pertinent snail mail contact info with “calendar” in the subject line to
– phone 800.845.2828 and request one from the lovely Diane at the Petoskey Area CVB office

And count the days until you can make it to the very Northwest corner of the Lower Peninsula near the Tip of the Mitten to see the scenes in person.

If you have photos of Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Bay Harbor and Boyne City and environs that you’d like considered for the 2013 calendar, upload them at the Petoskey Area flickr group page.
