Michigan Memorial Day Memories
Memories of Memorial Day at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula
I (David) spent 50 of my 60 years living in Michigan. And before we sold our business in 2006 and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, we would spend our holiday weekends in a condo that we owned in Michigan’s beautiful Leelanau Peninsula.
For many, Michigan summers meant a three-hour drive each weekend to the northern regions of the state to enjoy the beautiful lakes and vistas available to all.
I shot these photographs at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which was a mere 15-minute drive from our condo.
Beautiful, isn’t it? That is a 40-story mountain of sand! And those specs that you see in the lower photograph are folks crazy enough to walk to the bottom.
If you’ve never visited Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula, we highly recommend it. To see a few more of my photographs from Northern Michigan, CLICK HERE.
