Exploring Lake Michigan

We had the opportunity to spend a few days exploring Lake Michigan and the quaint beach town of Saugatuck. This is a beautiful area of the state with pristine beaches and glorious sand dunes.  We hiked in the one of Michigan's 112 state parks at Saugatuck Dunes State Park.  As we approached the lake through the forested dunes, we were awestruck at the sheer magnitude of Lake Michigan and it's 6 quadrillion gallons of water.  After our hike, we headed back to Campit Campground to enjoy the evening by a campfire.  We met many great people here and they were interested in ways they could Leave No Trace.  We successfully put on our first impromptu awareness workshop and got everyone excited about our travels and our cause.  A special thanks goes out to Monica, Vicki, and Pam for a great week at Campit Resort.  Our very first experiences in Michigan have been enjoyable and we look forward to exploring the Upper Peninsula of Michigan next week.  Safe Travels...
