Hiking trail and board over marshy areas

The northern end of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore has some marvelous hiking trails, some well-marked, others not so much. What I have noticed this year more than others, is the presence of swales and marshes that never quite dried up across the summer. Today’s photos are from a late Saturday afternoon hike north of Little Traverse Lake, along Lake Michigan’s beautiful beach.

Meggen’s 11/16 collection is a real delight. Thank you for going farther afield, into the secret little places that adorn the Peninsula. The woods and streams and boggy areas…. heaven.
