More Scenes from Northwest Michigan

Yesterday I posted some photos of the trilliums and other wildflowers from the Sleeping Bear area a couple weeks ago.  Today I’ll share some of the other things from that outing.

I had read that there was a covered bridge just north of Lake Ann, but had never seen it.  Well, I found it.

Here are some views of the trail and from the top of the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan.

There is a small park at North Bar Lake.  You can look across the lake and see into Lake Michigan.  You can reach the Lake Michigan shore by walking around North Bar Lake.

There are several access points to the Lake Michigan beach within Sleeping Bear.  Some have stairs taking you down to the beach.

The sandy dune is eroding at Pyramid Point.  The waves shown here are washing sand into the lake.

Apparently the road to Wisconsin must have also washed away.

While I was up there, the cherry blossoms were just starting to come out.  I drove by an orchard and saw only one tree in the entire orchard that was blooming.

I’m sure there will be more blossoms for the next trip.

That’s all for today.

    1. There are a couple similar signs along the shore of Lake Michigan. They make me laugh every time.
