First Road Trip of Spring

In between the snowstorms and rain, there have been a few days of sun and blue skies.  I decided to take my first road trip of spring down M-22.  I made stops at Good Harbor Bay, Port Oneida, Glen Haven, and ended up at Art's for dinner.

Searching for a place watch the sunset, I headed to Empire Beach.  I wasn't alone; cars were pouring in and jockeying for the best viewing spot.  And it was only March!

The sky was brilliant orange as the sun sank into the Lake. 

And suddenly the sun was gone, leaving me to anticipate the afterglow.

A few streaky clouds made the sky interesting.

Towards the north, a rosy glow enveloped Empire Bluffs.

I don't think there's a better way to end the day than to watch the sunset.  Peace came over me as I made the drive back to Northport.


  1. I never get tired of watching the sun set over the lake. Now all we need is some warmer temps!

  2. Me either. Hope my readers feel the same. Besides warmer temps, we have a new covering of snow this morning. :-(

  3. It is a treat to view these beautiful sunset images on a day when white is once again the predominant color! Thanks, Karen!

  4. Yes, I'm feeling lucky that I was able to get these sunset images. Looks like it's going to be another day of the white stuff.

  5. Thanks for reminding us of our beautiful part of the world---your photographs are so lovely!!

  6. Thanks, Sarah. For me, watching the sun set over Lake Michigan is just that reminder.
