2012/281: Solitude

2012/280: Sand Hills Lighthouse

Sand Hills Lighthouse is in Ahmeek, Michigan and run as a bed & breakfast. They don’t offer tours, but that didn’t stop us from looking at it from the outside.

2012/279: Eagle River Falls

Eagle River Falls was another easy-to-find roadside waterfall. Of course the girls were especially happy, because that meant not having to hike who-knows-how-far to get to it 😉

2012/278: Brave

Found this little butterfly right next to Jacobs Falls and had a little photo shoot while Greg and the kids were busy picking thimble berries.  He (she?) was truly brave because I got to get within about half an inch with my iPhone and olloclip. These photos, however, were taken with my Nikon and macro lens.

2012/277: Jacobs Falls

Jacobs Falls was very easy to find…it was right next to the road, and you couldn’t miss it.
