Sleeping Bear Snow Shoe Adventure – Honor Motel – Benzie County

A Sleeping Bear Snowshoe Rhyme!

We break away from daily captivity to enjoy our favorite winter activity. We like to call it trailblazing, the experience is always amazing. Come along and see, why snowshoeing has a way of setting us free! – Photo Story Courtesy of Honor Motel – Click on photos for slide-show view with captioned photo story…

Great news, we’re happy to rent you our snowshoes. The part we like the most, is that we are so close. We can point you in the right direction to an amazing collection of snow covered perfection! And if you should run in to “Park Ranger Jim”, tell him that his old friend Carol, “has a crush on him”!
