'THE M-22 CHALLENGE' is A MINI - TRIATHLON in early June (5K run, 17 mile bike ride and 2 mile Kayak). The M-22 Challenge starts just 2 miles from Birch Shores at the Dunes. Five young Ladies from Ann Arbor were our Guests in Aspen, as well as a nice Family in Hemlock for this event. One Gal finished SECOND in the Women's Division. The girls said that they liked our Kayaks much more than the ones furnished for the race. Of course, they will be allowed to use our Kayaks next year if they wish. We hope that they are all coming back for more in June.

TWO DARLING FAWNS were born in the forest within 100 yards of Birch Shores on May 14th this past spring of 2013... See the pictures on the first page. Deer, raccoons, porcupines, swans, ducks and turkeys are found in the woods and waters of the Park and often in our yard. Guests ski, bike, nature walk, fish, swim and climb the massive Dune to view Lake Michigan. Take the Leland Ferry and visit the Chippewa's mysterious Manitou Islands, part of the Park.
GLEN LAKE is known as 'The Jewel of the Leelanau...' This is an apt description of the Lake with the Sapphire Blues, Sandy Shallows, Emerald Greens and Deep Water Cobalt seen from Inspiration Point high above the Lake. Once a part of Lake Michigan over 12,000 years ago, the last mile-thick glacier melted here and deposited the 500 ft sands of the mighty Dune, cutting off the waters from the Great Lake Gitchigumi and formed the Glen Lakes.

A note from one of my Hero’s…
“We had a great time at your place and really enjoyed the boat ride. Thanks for your hospitality.”
Rudy T, University of Michigan All-American.
Rudy Tomjanovich used an outstanding jump shot and a knack for grabbing rebounds to average 30 points and fifteen rebounds per game and earn All-America honors in 1970. An outstanding high school player in Hamtramck, Michigan, Tomjanovich's accomplishments in the first three years of play in Crisler Arena (1967-1970) made him one of Michigan's basketball immortals.
Over the course of three seasons, the 6-7 forward corralled 1,039 rebounds, still the highest total in Michigan history, and twice led the Big Ten in rebounding (1968-69 and 1969-70). He led the team in scoring in each of his three seasons, totaling 1,808 point, sixth on the all-time list. His 25.1 career scoring average ranks second only to Cazzie Russell. Tomjanovich still holds the Crisler Arena records for single game scoring and field goals (48 points and 21 field goals vs Indiana, 1/7/69) and single game rebounding record (27 in Michigan's first game in Crisler Arean vs Kentucky, 12/2/67). His best rebounding effort came against Loyola in 1969 when he grabbed 30 caroms - tops on the Michigan all-time list.
Tomjanovich was chosen by the San Diego (later Houston) Rockets with the second pick in the 1970 NBA draft. In a twelve year pro career, he compiled some impressive statistics: 13,383 points, 17.4 points per game average, .501 field goal percentage, 6,198 rebounds. His number 45 jersey was retired by the Rockets. In 1992 he was called upon to be a mid-season replacement as head coach of his former team. Two years later Rudy led the Rockets the NBA title and captured another one in 1996.
SCENIC DRIVES on Pierce Stocking Drive in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park.
GOLF: Over 27 nearby golf courses: 'The Dunes' is 5 miles away and 'Le Bear' is a Jack Nickolas Pro Course in Traverse City.
GLEN LAKE is about 4 miles in diameter and as deep as 165 feet in places, fed from artesian flows under the lake, filtered through the depths of sand laid down by the great ice sheath eons ago. The clarity and purity of the water and the colors shown by the layered depths sparkle on a sunny day and shine in the light of the full moon.
LITTLE GLEN LAKE is contiguous with the larger Big Glen Lake. It is much shallower at 15 feet deep, about 7 to 10 degrees warmer than Big Glen and about 3 miles long by 1 mile wide. Both lakes share the same sandy bottom, pure filtered Artesian springs, clear water and is the source of the Crystal River.
SKI: CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN SKIING is 30 minutes away. Follow the Salmon spawning run on an easy Crystal River Kayak trip. Fishing varies by the season - Lake trout, Coho and Chinook salmon, large & smallmouth bass, perch, the sporty bluegills, sunfish and brown trout, with occasional Northern Pike.
SLEEPING BEAR DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE is across Day Forest Road from the cottages. Miles of hiking trails and scenic lookouts can be accessed from trail heads on Day Forest Road near the cottages. Look for 6” X 6” Trail Head markers set in the ground.
THE DUNES NATIONAL PARK was established by an Act of Congress in 1970 to preserve a unique landscape of rolling Drumlins, hills of glacial moraine left by the mile-thick Ice Sheet.
Year Purchased: 1988
