UHYST, GERMANY - AUGUST 10: A pier reaches into Baerwalder See lake on August 10, 2010 near Uhyst, Germany. Baerwalder See is actually a flooded, open-pit lignite coal mine that is part of a large-scale project to convert the massive pits that scar the region into a vacationer's paradise. The Lausitz and Middle German Mining and Administration Association (LMBV) is converting a total of 51 former mines, of which Baerwalder See is among the biggest, into lakes, and a similar project is planned for former mines in neighboring Poland.

The Dockside restaurant on Torch Lake. It’s cool to see the boats come in and go out. How could I have been born and raised in Michigan and not been here yet? Let’s go this summer!
