SNOWSHOE HIKE participants at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse enjoyed views of a partially frozen Lake Michigan. About a dozen people enjoyed a snowshoe hike around the northern tip of the Leelanau Peninsula Saturday.

The hike was conducted by Leelanau State Park Ranger Stephanie Rosinski and began at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Gift Shop. The hike then proceeded behind the Fog Signal Building for a view of a creek that flows into Lake Michigan.

Participants trekked through the woods around the state park campground while hearing stories about the historic lighthouse. The lighthouse has been guiding ships and sailors since it was built in 1858.
