If you have ever driven North from Traverse City on US-31 past Charlevoix and on to Bay Harbor and Petoskey then there's no doubt you've driven the stretch of road that dips right down to the shore of Lake Michigan. This is right where Little Traverse Bay begins and it is absolutely breath-taking! I drive down this road quite often and there's always bit of anticipation for what the lake will look like each time. This day was an un-characteristically calm day with big white billowing clouds that are pretty un-common for this time of year. It's hard to get back to work when you make a stop at a place like this!
