Sharing the Beauty of Fall in Michigan

This is a spectacular view from the Ridge Trail at Ludington State Park looking down on Lake Michigan and the Big Sable Point Lighthouse. We spent last weekend traveling on the western side of Michigan and enjoying some beautiful fall colors. We spent the first night in Frankfort, Michigan at a local "up North" type motel. After driving around earlier in the day and taking in all the gorgeous colors and views, we enjoyed walking around the little downtown area and along the water. I have a fascination with lighthouses, so we walked out to take a picture near the Frankfort North Breakwater Lighthouse (below). We had dinner at a local restaurant and feasted on their Friday night fishfry. Yummy!

Saturday we spent the day at Ludington State Park, hiking about 8-10 miles of trails. The weather was perfect and we hiked four different trails. We climbed to the top of the Big Sable Point Lighthouse and the view was spectacular. Below is a photo of the lighthouse and also one of us at the top, overlooking Lake Michigan.
