North Bar Lake and Lake Michigan Beyond


North Bar Lake marks the final breathtaking overlook along the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.




Our entire family heartily recommends a visit to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore! Weather wasn’t ideal, but Terry’s scheduled day off fell on the final Friday that this portion of the national park was open, so we traveled anyway. The park entrance pass cost $10 and covers a full week of admission.

Please note that the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, including all the overlooks I photographed, is now closed until next spring. The kids have already asked when we can return:)

      Yes…miracles do happen! Once in a great while I can catch Christian before he smothers his grin.

        Yes, Christian is EXTRA handsome when he smiles, silly young man to smother it. Sorry…. I guess I didn’t check my spelling before submitting that comment! 🙂 Now, if we could just get Mom to share her comments, because I KNOW she’s always checking your bloG.

        I agree. Wish Mom wasn’t so hesitant to comment. Hope she recovers soon from Jill cat’s passing and will gain the courage to share!
