Shores of Lake Michigan

July 11, 2011

Big hills along the upper coast of Lake Michigan remind me of the Appalachian foothills, only here there are spruce and pine forests with cherry and apple orchards in the small valleys. The many smaller inland lakes here are peppered with cottages, canoe liveries along the rivers, and highway M-22 is populated by a few cars, dozens of cyclists and joggers, and dog walkers.  The landscape is beautiful, especially along the Lake coast, where morning hues of blue and purple are burned away by morning sunlight peaking over the hills along the coast….

Postscript: Peter Lik is fun to watch on the Weather Channel, but do you really need $50K worth of photographic equipment, a personal Tribal guide, swimming in 50 degree water, et cetera to product cracker gallery shots? Not really, in my humble opinion.
