It was raining when we started out yesterday, but the park we were going to was over a couple of hours drive away so we headed out anyway. We drove through drizzle then full out rain that ended in a heavy fog. By the time we arrived at Ludington State Park only the fog remained. You could see a little blue sky through the fog so we decided it would probably burn off as the temperature heated up a little. We've been to Ludington State Park a couple of times before but we've only ever done the walk to the Lighthouse. It's one of my favourite lighthouses. HERE are some photos from one of those trips.
This time we went on a walk around the lakes - Lost Lake and Hamlin lake. It was really, really beautiful. This has to be one of my favourite walks so far. The shores of the lakes are just beautiful. The walk through the woods really stunning. It was an easy walk until we reached the Ridge Walk and then it was up, up and up some more! Well worth it though. Here are a few photos.
We're camping there for a night in September after I get back from England though I'm sure we'll make another trip up before then. We did stop by Lake Michigan (as it is in the park too).
The snow/sand drifting fences were still up
But they were starting to get ready for the summer season! I bet it won't be long until the barriers are removed.
What a beautiful place for a walk, thanks for taking us along.ReplyDelete
How stunningly beautiful Sharon.ReplyDelete
Your pictures remind me of paintings by an artist called Bob Ross who I used to love watching on Sky tv years ago-x-
Thank you SO much! I am finally learning how to use my camera and not just be on automatic mode.Delete
Very beautiful and your photos are so lovely! Obviously not taken with a cell phone like mine are! LOL.ReplyDelete
My husband bought me a Nikon D5300 camera for a wedding anniversary present a couple of years ago and I am finally learning how to use it properly. I've always enjoyed taking photos and now have more time to take them!Delete
What gorgeous photos, Sharon. To me, there is no scenery more beautiful than the combination of trees and water. So restful and soul-restoring! Thanks for your visit - the repair work in the kitchen is well under way now and the new floor is down, and he's hacked off the render from the wall. It's very dusty in there now! We are so pleased it's not as major as we'd thought.ReplyDelete
