Ohio to Michigan Day 3

We decided to head back to Michigan from Ohio on day 3. We wanted to visit some of the Dunes and State Parks and eventually end up at Grand Haven to see a few lighthouses there. Our first stop was this dune, although I can't recall the name. I liked the entrance:








Our second dune was in Saugatuck at the State Park. What we didn't know was that the trail taking us to the beach was a bazillion miles long, and almost worth it, but our footgear choices would have been different, had the park forewarned us of the trek...












Our third dune wasWarren Dunes State Park. I made a $100 bet that Becky wouldn't make it to the top...







She's still climbing....







There goes some perfectly good spending money!







At the State Park at Grand Haven were 2 lighthouses on a pier. This red one was about half-way...







This one was on the end of the pier. It was shaped like a ship...








The sun was about to set for this one last shot before we decided to head back to Illinois in the morning...

The first picture is gorgeous..love the composition. But frankly just looking at those dunes makes me tired and my legs ache. Wow! I just couldn't climb up even one. Great photos!
