Kayaking the Big Sable

fall foliage and kayak

We kayaked the Big Sable River from the beach at Lake Michigan to the dam. It’s an easy paddle on a lazy river.

We spent five glorious days kayaking and hiking at Ludington State Park on the shores of Lake Michigan. My favorite Michigan state park.

Three days at Interlochen State Park and surrounding area, including M-22, the Traverse City area, and kayaking on Duck Lake.

Three days at Young State Park, the more modern state park near Charlevoix. Boyne City is an even closer cute little town.
