Sunday, Bob and I hiked to Au Sable Lighthouse. There were two trailheads and we took the one that was deemed most scenic, it was also the longest. Our trailhead began at Log Slide Viewing Area and headed west along the coastline to the lighthouse. We could see the lighthouse from the trailhead and we knew there would be many ups and downs to reach it.
Once we arrived back at our trailhead, we stopped to watch people slide down the STEEP dune. It takes less than a minute to slide down...but over an hour to climb back up!
On Monday, we went with Larry and Connie on a day trip to Kitch Iti Kipi State Park. Kitch Iti Kipi is the largest natural spring in Michigan. This barge which is on a cable, takes you over the boil and to the other side.
From Kitch Iti Kipi we continued on our sightseeing tour and visited Indian Lake State Park before stopping for lunch in a lakeside restaurant.
Tuesday was our last day at Bay Furnace, so Bob and I took advantage of another beautiful day to hike to Miner's Falls, Miner's Rock, and Miner's Beach.
Our first hike was to Miners Falls.
We enjoyed our time at Bay Furnace and would like to return to do more of the activities offered in this part of Michigan.
Wednesday would be moving day...on to Sault Ste. Marie!
