More times than not, the best places I have stumbled across have been by complete accident. The area I am sharing with you today, started off as just a quick bathroom break before I turned around to drive home. I discovered something much more at this beautiful stop.
Last Thursday I took a drive up to Lexington, MI. After I was done walking around there, I took a drive a bit further north. After about a half hour of scenic driving, I stopped a little roadside park to use the bathroom and noticed a sign on a bridge that said “stairs to lake.” Intrigued…I followed.
When I turned the corner, I saw Lake Huron and a beautiful staircase leading down to a very secluded beach.
Next, I walked down the staircase and the sights took my breath away. It was stunning! Only one other person sitting there. birds singing, and a nice cool breeze coming in off the lake.
I found a nice rock that resembled a seat, and decided I might as well stay a while and dip my feet in the nice cool lake. Spending time in a place with only the sounds of nature is pure bliss. The cheapest form of therapy 🙂
