I have to take a break from Flower Show pictures to tell you about a hike today.
For over 10 years, Ewa Roszczenko (say EV-uh) and I have belonged to an on-line hiking group, but we'd never met in person. She's quite an adventurer, much more so than I am. She's a skier, mountain climber, backpacker. This weekend, she and some people from the Sierra Club planned to come here for the weekend and backpack from Ludington State Park into Nordhouse Dunes. I had things to do that kept me from going all weekend, but I hiked with them for a few miles and then turned back.
There was about an inch of snow that fell last night, and it was just enough to make things beautiful without making the hiking too difficult.
First rest at the Big Sable Lighthouse, where we snagged another visitor to take our picture.
I walked about another mile and a half before turning around. I hope I get to do other things with Ewa in the future!
There's nothing like six miles in the sunshine with a person who shares many of your interests to provide cheer!
I just have to show you some other pictures from this walk tomorrow. There are some really interesting images.
