Silver Lake

On Sunday we decided to take advantage of the last day of summer and headed up to spend the afternoon at Silver Lake. Mike and I, along with his sister Jen, and Tyler and their parents went up first and Brett and Jordan met us later.

Here we're waiting for lunch to be ready. We grilled burgers and hotdogs...and had chips...yummy :)

We climbed up a big sand dune. It's hard to see how steep it is from this picture, but it was quite a climb.

This is Silver Lake

It was cloudy for a while, but when the sun came out it was really nice out!

Mike tackled Brett...and they got a little sandy

This truck was trying to get up the dune, but it had to keep rolling back down. I think it took 3 or 4 tries before it made it. People clapped and cheered when they finally made it over.

This Jeep made it over a lot easier than the truck. There are lots of places around where you can rent a Jeep or a dune buggy. We thought it was fun just to watch everyone.


  1. What a great day to go out to the lake. Looks like a lot of fun.

  2. you should've tried getting your convertible up there :) that would be entertaining... hehehe

  3. Love Silver Lake! Did you know my light house is close to there?! At least the kids call i my lighthouse - Little Sable. Anyway I know first hand how big those dunes are! Hate to climb them!!!!!

  4. Looks like you had a perfect day!

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog recently - it is nice to "meet" you! I took a peek at your recipe blog, too - and now I'm totally hungry. :)

  6. We went to silver lake this summer and went camping. You did the same dune that we did and climbed it also.
