In honor of Earth Day earlier this week, we asked our fans on Facebook and Twitter to share their photos of our beautiful Michigan earth. From flowering fields to singing streams and sandy shores, we were in awe of all the wonderful submissions!
What better way to showcase Michigan’s natural beauty than create a roundup of a few of our favorites. Here are ten outstanding photos from our fans to commemorate Earth Day 2014 and our beautiful Michigan earth.
