It's only going to get colder.

It's the end of November and we're all dreading the first bad snow storm. Can't we just go back to May?

But, while most of us aren't looking forward to freezing our fingers off while shoveling or scraping away snow, we can appreciate the beauty and wonder that winter brings to the already-beautiful Michigan.

Here are some photos from Instagram to ease you into the thick coats, mittens and snowshoes.

Happy Turkey Day !

"Show me a person who never made a mistake, and I will show you a person who never did anything." - William Rosenberg We came out here looking to find a frozen dam. There was nothing. It was all melted. Instead of giving up on the shoot I went and looked at a little cove off the side. It had begun to melt as well, but it refroze creating this magnificent sight. Never give up! There is beauty right around the corner. #puremichigan #michigan #michigander #michiganphotography #greatlakesstate #greatlakes #michiganwinter #winter #awesomemitten #mittentrip #enjoymichigan #thegreatlakesstate #mittenlove #alpena
