The Most Beautiful Place in the United States


The thought that we spent the day at the most beautiful place in United States still beguiled me. The accolade was not something I just invented but it’s actually granted and undeniably deserved by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. With over 100,000 votes from the public, the award was given by ABC’s Good Morning America.

I was wonderstruck to see the panoramic scenic view of the entrancing beauty of this place. I think, pictures describe a thousand words so I would let the pictures speak for this majestic beauty right here in Michigan!

The second stop at the scenic views of the Sleeping Bear Dunes park.

Beautiful view with special people in my life.


Most of the land on the islands is now owned by the National Park Service and is open to the public. 




Sunny beaches and sky-high dunes. 



Sam's adventurous nature brought us to the most beautiful place in the United States.

The hills, dunes, valleys, shoreline, small lakes, and streams which you'll see throughout the area were formed by the powerful earth-moving forces of ice, wind, and water over time.

Trail leads to a lookout at the top of Pyramid Point. 

Lake Michigan’s water can be a bit chilly in June, but is a welcome relief during the hot parts of July and August.

The trip was also a great bonding experience.

The pyramid point trail is about 2.7 miles long with a spur to a lookout point high over Lake Michigan. 

Miles and miles of clear water and white sand.

Lake Michigan seems so near but it actually requires about two hours of going back up the hill.

With beautiful Sam. :)
Overlooking the two islands.



Sam and Zack brought us to the two most beautiful places we've ever been in Michigan- Sleeping Bear Dunes and Pictured Rocks.

The steep hill scared me at first. The water seems near but it'll take you two hours to climb up and 2,000 dollars if you need to be rescued.
That's as far as I could go. The height scared me.


The colors of the lake indicate the water level.
The water seems so near but it's actually higher and it would take you two hours to hike.



Picturesque sceneries as far as your eyes could see.

The man in blue shirt actually went down the steep hill 20 years ago.
