Compared to the previous year, this winter seems to be ending without much of a fight. Last year our annual Memorial Day weekend trip to the U.P greeted us with massive icebergs still floating on Lake Superior. Although I haven’t been to Lake Superior since February, it’s pretty clear by the signs on Lake Michigan that winter nearly finished. Now is my favorite time to visit the Lake Michigan shoreline. The formations created by winter and the mounds of sand resting in the middle of a barely frozen lake present their own breath-taking beauty.
