Earlier this month a guest photo from Doug Smith took us to the snowy dunes of Lake Michigan, and today we're back (via Steve Brimm), this time on the north shore (near Escanaba), with a dog sled instead of cross country skis. As I mentioned in yesterday's Notes, I've been updating the Pasty Cam remotely, on vacation in the South (even got a little sunburn yesterday afternoon). Tomorrow we head north again, and should see Lake Michigan in person by Monday, passing through Traverse City/Petoskey area.

If you have never visited the Northern Great Lakes area in winter, you ought to consider it sometime. It's a whole different world.

Hi, Charlie,
You better get back home quick. Your veins will thaw out and you won't be able to think.

I grew up in NW Ind and we knew it was fully winter when the teenagers would DRIVE THEIR CARS out onto the lake at Whiting Beach. No kidding.
