Lake of the Clouds

One of my favourite views on our recent camping trip was Lake of the Clouds, up in the Porcupine Mountains of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It was a truly beautiful place. There is a lovely viewing area high above the trees and looking down into the forests below. There are walking trails down there too that we hope to do next year when we visit. It's a touristy area and was quite busy during the day but we went back at night and we were the only ones there! Beautiful!

I LOVED this place! When we were there by ourselves it felt like we were on top of the world and all alone. 

This was our sunset view. The trees in the distance looked almost yellow but it was only the sun as it was beginning to set. I can imagine this would be a gorgeous view in the autumn with all the wonderful colours to see.

Son and I couldn't resist getting up early one morning to see the sunrise - again we were all alone. We sat for a couple of hours and just enjoyed the view. Unfortunately it was quite cloudy first thing so not too much colour.

 I really need to get moving now - back into the daily business - and stop looking through photos.  Got a house to tidy up and dusting to be done. Happy Monday!


  1. Such beautiful views and a joy to see a part of the world that I am not likely to visit. The amazing world of blogging.

  2. It is beautiful! I can see why you liked it so much. As Mamasmercantile said, it is one of the wonders of blogging that we get to go too, thank you for taking us!

  3. Just look at the colour of that beautiful-x-

  4. Beautiful views from the viewing area during the day and the evening. It must have been a good experience to go back at a quiet time and appreciate the sunrise and the sunset.

  5. Lovely scenery. You take such lovely photos!
