Lots of Trilliums and other Spring Wild Flowers

I was hiking in the Sleeping Bear area of northwest Michigan a couple weeks ago and saw lots of trilliums and other spring flowers.  They were wide-spread throughout the park.  Here are some of the photos from the trip.

All of these were growing on a trail to Lake Michigan, some of which were within 20 feet of the top of the sand dune that dropped off ~300 feet to the lake.

I was fortunate to catch all these flowers at their peak.  I’ll share some of the other scenes from my walk along the Sleeping Bear Dunes soon.

  1. favorite of mine is the “under the log”
    we used to have trilliums at the other house, I miss them and have not seen any around out lake, such a different climate than yours. I’m here at the lake since Thursday. Will head home by the weekend, maybe . . . or I could stay longer. I sleep, eat, walk, paint, sit on the dock, paint some more, walk some more, REPEAT. Good for my soul.
