10.25.15/Autumn beauty

We spent the day enjoying fall at its peak.  First stop: our traditional walk to the top of Sugar Loaf. FullSizeRender (3)This year we were not alone.  We met many who made the same steep walk up “Awful Awful” with the same intention: to experience the vibrant colors embrace the surrounding lakes as the sun displayed her magic weaving in and out of the clouds.
We spent the day exploring Leelanau.  We made our way to Old Settlers picnic grounds; Glen Arbor and around Big and Little Glen to see the damage from the August storm. We walked the Empire Bluffs, Empire beach, South Bar Lake.  We enjoyed “Inspiration Point”.  We drove the Stocking  scenic drive and up “Miller Hill”; taking two tracks through the dense forests and into the grounds of the Homestead.  It was a lovely fall day…FullSizeRender (4)

When all was said and done we chose Sugar Loaf as the most spectacular of all. The height and range of her 360 degree vantage creates a feeling of heavenly awe: standing above the world… looking down.
