Avalanche!

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Avalanche hazards are not restricted to the mountains of our western states.
At Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (near Empire, Michigan)  a clear and
 present danger results from powerful winds on shifting sands capped with layers of snow.
But it is a natural living wonderland like none other!

Wow! I never would have thought of the risk of avalanche. I love the moody grey lake shot.
