Visit the white sand, er snow beaches of Michigan

April writes On Sunday, somewhat on a whim we decided to drive from Chicago to Grand Rapids. What followed was a long drive (sans ipod – though with the added bonus of Patrick’s singing) through the outskirts of Gary, Indiana and a white knuckling lake effect snow storm. When we got to South Haven, Michigan we went to visit the lake and snap a few shots of the ice covered lighthouse pier. The winds were ferocious, and the lake was positively heaving.

She has a few more photos from South Haven including this interesting look back to shore from the South Haven Pier.
