An Afternoon Jaunt to Lake Michigan

How fortunate as aviators,we are to live in Michigan, with it’s wide array of scenic offerings.  The same landscapes seen from above can take on many different appearances, depending the season of the year, or even the time of day you fly over.  Whether Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall – anytime is a beautiful time to explore our Great Lakes state.

It is so easy to take for granted that while sipping our morning coffee, we can make a spontaneous decision to head to 9D9, hop in the plane and head to the shores of Lake Michigan  for a leisurely “sunday drive” and be soaring over the likes of Grand Haven, Holland or Saugatuck in roughly the time it would take to drive to the local mall.  This particular day, we lingered over Holland long enough to capture the photos below. Yes, we are very fortunate indeed!
