So beautiful, so much more beautiful than Lake Michigan!
After church we turned north. We had not seen Lake Superior yet, and what better thing to do on a Sunday afternoon than a Sunday drive. Three hours and thirty minutes according to the GPS to Munising and the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
It is sooooo green here.
We walked to the first few overlooks.
We decided to walk to the lower over look.
The short hike down to the second overlook made us hungry for a longer hike so we ventured further down the trail another mile or so. There were way less mosquitos (nearly none) the kids nearly ran the whole way it was so fun. The beautiful beach at the end of the trail was the best bonus ever.
The roots and mud made for a really fun obstacle course.
The slow little river was dubbed, “the honey bucket river” due to it’s color.
It was going to get dark on us and the hike was longer than the mile it stated on the sign so sadly we said good bye to the amazing beautiful and superior to all lakes, Lake Superior.
I was bare footing it to strengthen my feet and as a child I enjoyed the mud and sand between my toes.
With the lake behind us and sunset in front of us we headed home.
