"Inspiration Point" Bluff overlooking Lake Michigan and the little town of Arcadia, Michigan

I was going to head down to Grand Haven during the gale warnings for (Draco) and shoot there, and the St. Joe lighthouse, but I decided to shoot something new. I ended up first in the little town of Arcadia. The roadside park was closed and 16 inches or more of fresh snow fell during the night so I had to park the truck a half mile or so up the road and walk back. The stairs that climb up to the lookout were drifted thigh deep in snow, making it quite a feat . It was well worth the climb though, the view was gorgeous, the waves are much bigger than they appear. If you look close you can see Trinity Lutheran Church, Arcadia's most prominent structure and a Michigan state historic site.
