Anyone who has ever traveled to the wonderful state of Michigan between November and April has probably experienced snow. Either remnants of snow on the ground, snow falling from the sky, or people talking about snow in excited tones or moan-full sorrows. There are large portions of the population who avoid the snow by heading south, not just birds, but people too. However, there are people like me, who love the snow. A beautiful, silent, cold and sparkly part of nature that blesses us every year. February brought Valentines love and continued snow, and to celebrate we decided to remain in our beautiful state and head to Muskegon, Michigan.
While it was very cold in Muskegon, we had beautiful weather with limited wind and lots of sun. We visited a few breweries while in the area and walked out to Muskegon South Pierhead Lighthouse. The lighthouse was beautiful covered in snow and ice. We followed along the pier, as best we could, which was covered in snow and ice as well.
We managed to warm up while walking out and the normally easy walk felt slightly more difficult under chunks of ice. We took great pictures, still some of my favorites from our adventures, and enjoyed a day out in the sun.
During our visit to Muskegon we wanted to double dip and visit Colin’s sister and her boyfriend in Grand Rapids. We also ended up at a brewery here, shocking I know, and enjoyed our time with family.
Muskegon was a short, beautiful trip. We enjoyed getting to see a beautiful part of the state we live in. Plus, getting to see family while on an adventure is always a great addition.
