Beautiful Afternoon Over Lake Michigan

Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore was recently selected by Good Morning America as the most beautiful place in the US. Surely it lived up to this yesterday afternoon as we flew our Weasels and other planes.

Even with moderate winds (10 mph) there was tremendous lift off the 400 foot high sand dune.

Beautiful indeed, that looks lika a a-some slope, and nice flying. If I hadnt spent 4 hours sloping to the sunset watching that vid would have hurt big time.
