Reading the news about people destroying Joshua Tree National Park makes me physically ill and mega depressed. While hiking Yankee Springs last weekend, I told Justin we should go pick up trash in the Sleeping Bear Dunes- to do an act of kindness and be the good example I want to see, but also as a coping mechanism for feeling helpless to the shitstorm cloud that is over our country. I love Justin because his response was, β€œYes! Let’s do that for my birthday.” So here we areβ€” and of all the places we went on this beautiful Sunday, we found a singular piece of trash. Michiganders don’t suck. We’ll be back at it tomorrow. Be sure to wish my kind hearted companion a happy 31st tomorrow ☺️

Every time we cruise up m22, we have a magical journey with impeccable weather. My heart just swells with a love for the Lake Michigan coastline. Point Betsie was covered in ice this morningβ€” a dangerous beauty! Justin takes the coolest pictures πŸ’™ and may or may not have ended up on his back while doing so hahahha.

The water at Point Betsie is an unbelievable turquoise. If it weren’t part of Lake Michigan, I’d swear it was a blue raspberry liquid πŸ’™

So in today’s M22 adventures....I started out with some hiking through some woods and over some dunes at Esch Road / Otter Creek and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Then planned on stopping at Point Bestie for sunset then hitting Frankfort light for afterglow. Wwwwell...I had a little too much fun at Point Betsie and never left!! Guess I’ll just have to come back soon! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ In any case...the sunset was unreal tonight!! A burner!!πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ I think for the first post of my M22 adventures, I will go with moody though...Point Betsie from the other direction! I love sunsets like this...burner in one direction...and mood in the other! And that water though! 😍 Oh and also....my snowscapades were not super snowy haha...snow up this way but as you can see...it was quite sparse after a 40 degree winter day! This is yet another excuse for me to come back. Next snow storm...I’ll be baaaack!! πŸ˜‚πŸ₯Άβ„️ #sunset #water #longexposure #longexpoelite #nikonnofilter #visualambassadors #pointbetsie #empire #m22life #northernmichigan #upnorth #gameoftones #goandcapturethelight #puremittigan #trb_sunsetsfx #sun_sultans #traveling_sunset #fiftyshades_of_nature #sky_sultans #everything_imaginable #fairytale_sunset #hey_ihadtosnapthat #michigan #puremichigan #puremittenpride #michiganders #nature #colors_of_day #nautical_images

Last summer in Michigan I spent part of an afternoon reading, something I don’t do as much as I usually want to. It was such a pleasant afternoon, a nice breeze blowing, the sound of the lake nearby. I made this image to try and capture that moment. Expired Kodak Portra 400 using a Canon EF and Fd 28mm f2.8 lens. Converted to black and white in post.

We are in the darkest days of the year. I’m hoping for some big snows to brighten things up as we pass the solstice and head for the depths of winter. At least the lake makes all the light and dark beautiful. What’s your favorite thing about winter? It’s things like this and hikes and skiing for me. And the quiet and lack of chewing bugs. Okay, so I like it a lot even if the darkness gets to me πŸ˜‰
