One Beautiful Duck (Interlochen State Park 4/4)

Duck Lake, that is!

 

Taken at Interlochen State Park in Interlochen, Michigan. This park is located ON two fishing and swimming lakes: Green Lake and Duck Lake. This is taken at some stairs right the edge of the campground. Nearby is a nice beach on this lake, too!

 

Interlochen State Park is Michigan's first state park and was established by the Michigan Legislature in 1917 as a 200-acre public park to preserve one of the last virgin pine stands for the people of Michigan. And indeed, it has some beautiful old-growth trees along the Pines Nature Trail. But those are hard to capture -- something I'll have to explore during future visits. Web site #1 and Web site #2. There's even a large tipi you can rent! Here's more about that: Rent-A-Tipi.
