My Favorite Locations

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Michigan, featuring a striking rock formation with layered colors jutting out from emerald green waters under a sky with soft clouds. This visual encapsulates the natural beauty and geological wonder of Michigan's lakeshore.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park, straddling Tennessee and North Carolina, showcasing a lush green meadow leading to rolling hills under a dramatic sunset sky, embodying the serene and diverse landscapes of the park.
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan, featuring golden sand dunes with sparse grasses in the foreground, transitioning to the deep blue waters of a lake under a clear sky, inviting visitors to explore the natural beauty of the dunes and waterfront.
