The new header image was shot at the Belle Chevre Cheese Shop and Tasting Room in Elkmont, Alabama. The shop was dog friendly and offered sandwiches, goat cheese and hand made fig ice cream.
The shop sits along the Richard Martin Trail. If you start your hike south or north of town you can stop at the tasting room for lunch before heading back to your car.
Warren Dunes State Park on the shore of Lake Michigan. May 8, 2016.
This is a pretty amazing place and well worth the visit if you’re in the area. Be sure to do the full hiking loop for the best experience. We practically had the place to ourselves on our visit.
