Its crazy how high the water of Lake Michigan is. There is absolutely no beach to speak of. And thats kinda sad. Its tough to walk along the lake now let alone ride.
It didnt get this way overnight, its been rising for 3 or 4 years now. I remember it like this back in the early 80’s. Look at the pic abouve and the beach was as far out as where that first wave is breaking, or farther. In the winter I remember riding on 30 feet of beach and that was not that long ago. Last year the winter beach rides were at a minimum even with the fat tires.
Now you’re walking\riding up in the grass. Just not as much fun. Im sure the ebb and flow will have it lower in years to come but it still is on the rise. I read articles about lake shore homes losing land to the waves. Some down south are being threatened and are close to falling in.
I’ll continue to visit almost daily. Either by car or bike. High or low water Im glad to live next to this.
