Letting the waves wash the day away at sunset on Lake Michigan

The northwest shores of Lake Michigan are populated by sandy beaches, rugged bluffs and dramatic dunes that make the perfect backdrop for evenings spent letting the day complete itself as waves wash ashore over sandbars and stones. As the world's fifth largest body of freshwater, Lake Michigan supports a wild and diverse ecosystem that is threatened by many of the same issues that plague the world's waters: zebra mussels, run-off from shoreline development, overfishing, etc. Still. a walk along the water's edge where wind and water meet stone and sand has a restorative effect, especially during the most trying of times.
