Camping in Michigan

Our daughter and grand kids are home on vacation for a few of weeks. We went camping last week at one of our beautiful state parks on Lake Michigan. The weather was perfect, hot, sunny and no rain or mosquitos. (I really posted these pictures backwards but I'm rushed and not thinking clearly, I need sleep:). The camp (P. J. Hoffmaster) we stayed at has a beautiful creek running through it, our campsite was right on it. This shows where the creek runs into Lake Mi.

We have huge sand dunes (not found anywhere else in the world) that everyone loves to climb.

And wonderful hiking trails through magical forests. When I was a kid one of my favorite Disney movies (I think was called) The Gnome Mobile. Hiking through the woods here reminds me of that movie. I loved these 3 little spruce trees growing out of one little trunk along side a huge spruce tree.

Here are two of my little "Gnomes" sitting in a tree.

This is the creek running along our camp, the kids loved playing in it catching minnows and water skippers with their nets.

The twins tried their hand at fishing, but they liked playing in it best.

I always loved camping out there. I remeber catching little tiny toads, & having one jump up my nose! I also remeber finding a moss that had a glow-in-the-dark phosphorescence there.
