Sleeping Bear Dunes Along the Shores of Lake Michigan & The Heritage Bike Trail
Who knew? I have lived in the Midwest for decades, OK several decades and had only recently heard of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore located on Lake Michigan in the northwest corner of the "mitten" state known as Michigan. Heralded as The Most Beautiful Place in America by a national newspaper, I was skeptical having stood in the Valley at Yosemite, watched Olde Faithful in it's majesty, seen the Grand Tetons, buffalo in Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon and after our visit at the very least if not THE most beautiful place Sleeping Bear Dunes is certainly one of THE most beautiful places in our great country! 450' Sand dunes severely sloping into Lake Michigan and 4 sq. miles of glacial moraines to hike along with pristine waters to paddle and secluded campgrounds. Come along as we share our experience during a five day trip to visit Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and ride The Heritage Trail.

Manitowish Waters, Outdoor Beauty and Cycling
I knew about the beauty and serenity found in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin, but we had never been there. We needed to take a little break from working in our client's gardens and the productive year we have had in our business and it was time to unplug. Stop by and listen as we share the great experience we had while riding on the Heart of Vilas County BIke Trail, eating in great local restaurants and watching the local water ski show.
