Road Trip: Day 6

We spent the morning at the laundromat drying out sleeping bags and pillows, and checking into the hotel. I took a short nap, while Marc retrieved the rest of our belongings from the campsite. The rest of the rain ended up going south of us, so we carried on with our original plans -- our annual hike at Sleeping Bear Dunes. The goal is to make it all the way to Lake Michigan and back. At 3.5 miles round trip, it is quite the workout, but so worth it. You don't care how cold the Lake is when you get there! This was our third consecutive year to complete the hike (the first year was interrupted by Gracie breaking her arm). We then rewarded ourselves by skipping dinner and going straight for ice cream at the Dairy Maid in Frankfort.

Anna and Ryne were the first to make it to the lake.
Usually Gracie is content to let her siblings go off and do their own thing, while she explores.
Life is good!
This is what happens if you get lost!
Almost back! (Glen Lake in the background)
