Week 5

Pure Michigan

"My best friend's husband was sitting on the back of his boat on Mullet Lake in Cheboygan Michigan during what we call "Boat weekend" while we were all in the water. Once I saw him I thought What a beautiful picture to capture our "Captain Scott" enjoying a beautiful day in Michigan. #PureMichigan" - Submitted by Shannon M.

Yoga on a mountain is so much better!

"My summer moment happened on a Friday. My husband and I and our friends Michelle and Tony took a hike up to Breakneck Ridge Mountain that runs along the Hudson River from Cold Spring to Beacon. It is a strenuous hike! Serious rock scrambling but so fun! Since Michelle is a yoga instructor at the Body Art Barn in Chester, NY, we did some yoga on the mountain to stretch out the muscles! I highly recommend this hike... the views up top are incredible!" - Submitted by Andrea C.

"I started dancing when I was 16 years old, and I have a passion for photography along side my love for dance. That is why I asked my best friend to join me on a trip to Daytona beach Florida for a little photo shoot, of me practicing my passion." - Submitted by Pete S.

"My daughter Rachel, took this photo with her iPhone. It is a photo of her husband Jared tossing their daughter Lucy (on the left) and Jared's two brothers tossing each of their children. They were spending the week at White Lake in Montague, Michigan with their parents and their families. I think this photo captures the show of spending time with family in the summertime!." - Submitted by Barbara M.
