Sleeping Bear

I spent a Saturday at the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore earlier in the month. This is a national park, that for some reason seems to be off a lot of people radar.

I was hoping for some fall color. Unfortunately the park has a lot of oaks, which seem to just turn brown rather than the brillant crimson and yellows of the maple family. There was a lot of patches of color, but not the vistas I was hoping for.

Of course, since I was only able to spend a single Saturday in the park, it's entirely possible I missed it. A beautiful area anyway, and one I keep telling myself I need to spend more time at.

Pretty! I love the fall colors too when the leaves are a rainbow of reds, yellows, fire oranges!!
