Close
your eyes (...after reading the following paragraph) and picture the
following.....

Crimson,
flax and moss bordering the charcoal blacktop.  Leaves and trees no more
than a blur. Mile after mile...after mile. The hum of the car engine a symphony
breaking the eerie quietness of the dawn. Fiery red sun low in the eastern sky
hidden behind Swiss cheese clouds. Rays of sunlight shooting down towards the
approaching landscape. The occasional glimpse of Lake Michigan to the right.
Curve after curve...after curve. Then another curve......and a view that is
forever stained in my mind. A clearing in the trees bordering the right side of
the highway. Land jutting out onto the lake. A peninsula capped with a
lighthouse. The radiant rays of sunlight illuminating the beacon of light in
contradiction to its normal purpose. A lighthouse should illuminate the way for
approaching vessels. In this instance...itself being illuminated.

They
say a picture is worth a thousand words. I am nowhere near a thousand words in
describing the view I saw that early morning driving along the shores of Lake
Michigan. For every picture I have taken there are probably 3 that I wish I
could have.  When you are driving and pulling a trailer you see so many
sights and it is just not possible to stop in time to take the picture. Nor is
there room to pull over. All I can do is forever store that information in my
mind. You'll have to do your own road trip to have your own memories. 

Here are a few pictures from this part of my Journey.
