Recently while stopped near a small lake, one tree was turning while everything else around it was fighting the change. The reflection is what caught my attention, as it was significantly darker than the light on the trees.
Due to weather, we decided to cut our stay in Mackinaw City short by 1 day. Instead, we decided to take a different route back home, heading further north that originally intended. Our route would include a stop at Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Michigan. Val had found information about these falls from one of the brochures she collected at the Seul Choix Lighthouse.
The first day in Michigan proved to be the best for weather, so we spent the day on Mackinac Island. It was chilly and breezy, but we chose to walk rather than take the carriage tour.
On the way to Mackinaw City, we stopped at several different lighthouses along the northern shore of Lake Michigan. The last one, and most impressive of the day, was Seul Choix (pronounced Sis-Schwah). We got there in time for the final tour of the day, but had plenty of daylight to wonder the grounds and take in different views of the lighthouse.
Val and I took a few days to head over to Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. The weather was not the greatest, with a heavy overcast or clouds, and even one day of persistent rain. I took some time each morning to try and get out and photograph the Mackinac Bridge. Below are few different images that were made.
