PostSubject: GMA's Top 10 places in America   Tue Aug 09, 2011 12:27 pm

This morning Good Morning America had a segment on America's top 10 most beautiful places. The two places they chose to focus on in their segment were:

Point Reyes, California (Carol or Rhonda, have either of you been there?)

And....


Sleeping Bear Dunes, Michigan!!! thud


What a shocker!! Not that it's not amazingly beautiful, but honestly, Michigan is not usually 'recognized' often enough for its beauty, so it's surprising and lovely to see! Thumbsup


My family and friends and I all went there two years ago. I'd been there years ago, but for the first time was there from "Empire, Michigan", which give views that you don't get anywhere else; the views that you'll see in this segment. The only thing I'm surprised about is that they didn't make any mention of the "Sleeping Bear", and show how you can actually make out the bear in the landscape.


Here is the link....unfortunately it won't link directly to it. You'll see features on the front page video section, and "Top 10 places" is the third one down.

And here are some pictures of our family a couple of years ago, taken at this same spot. Sorry for being repetitious, I know I showed these awhile back. And oh my, I didn't realize I needed to re-size these!!! Sorry for the size. ShyGirl


Can you see the bear, lying on its side?




My son and I, looking out over the lake:

Oh, wow!! How fantastic that Sleeping Bear Dunes received such an honor! And please don't apologize about sharing the pictures - I always love seeing them. (Oh, and the site automatically re-sizes them now, so no problem about that, either. ) Thanks for posting this, Amy!!

Ohhhhh, I wish you could take a vacation in Sleeping Bear Dunes, Rhonda! You'd be driving right through my neck of the woods (and Amy's) on the way up! And you KNOW that Amy and I would be waiting to give you a proper Michigan greeting.

Looks like a beautiful place.

Indeed we would! Thumbsup Honestly, that was a spot that we did not want to leave....we just kept drinking in the beauty. I could live RIGHT there in Empire. loveheart THIS would be a neat vacation destination spot for we Michiganders to meet one day. (and a certain Missourian Wink ---is that a word?? Huh? ). Rhonda, you can hitch a ride with Savannah & me! We'll meet up with Pam and Lori and Rob and whoever else want to come! grouphug Hey, I can dream, can't I??? Love
