Here is a photo from Sleeping Bear Dunes near Empire, MI. I was there a little over three years ago and would love to go back again. I visited here on a day trip. I was out to capture images of Michigan's Covered Bridges. I remember when I arrived at the Pierce Stocking Bridge I was a bit underwhelmed. I took pictures anyway and I am glad that I did because I now really like the images that I have of this bridge. Feeling a bit let down, I decided to drive the circle route through the park. And boy I was sure glad I did. I was able to see an area of Lake Michigan that I had never seen before and it was close to sunset, about an hour away at most. The scenic outlooks along the trail were well worth the stop. The nice thing about being there at the beginning of November was not a lot of tourist traffic as I am sure they are bustling in the summer months. I was able to just stop on the side of the road if I saw something that caught my eye. Have a wonderful weekend. I am going to try and get a couple of auto posts set up for this next week. I have a busy week ahead of me and I'm not even cooking a big holiday meal. I'm maybe making a side dish but nothing else. Have a blessed Thanksgiving. Remember to be grateful for what you have now because you never know what the future holds.
