Sharing more Michigan photos today -- these are from a hike Paul and I took on the Empire Bluff Trail just outside of Empire, Michigan. This was no normal hike. This was the first hike Paul and I took as parents, and the first time we went out together since Theo was born. It felt strange at first, but we gradually eased into the time together. I think it helped that we were in such beautiful surroundings.
Can you guess why Sleeping Bear dunes got its name? Hint: take a look at the shape of the trees behind me.
And the final view after the quick 3/4 mile hike: gorgeous Lake Michigan. I'm ready to go back for another hiking date.
