Sleeping Bear Dunes - Empire Bluff Trail
Eager to get out and at least pretend to have spring on Spring Break I headed out to Sleeping Bear Dunes with my family. The kids had been absolutely itching to go hiking so the 1.5 mile round trip out to Empire Bluff seemed like a good first hike of the year. Relatively balmy temps in the mid-40's made it comfortable and the blue skies made for some fantastic scenery. Here's hoping spring is on its way...
