Sunny Winter Dunes Snowshoe

Yesterday the beautiful sunshine convinced my exercise partner, Lois Fite, and I to snowshoe up in the Grand Sable Dunes in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.  The temperature was in the 20s, but there was no wind.   The pictures do not give the beauty of the winter dunes any justice.

Sable Lake is nearly frozen.  There are just a few open water spots showing....

I just love the contrast in color between the dune grass and the white snow.

There are only a few places in the dunes where the sand is showing through.

Looking north toward Lake Superior....
