Big Winds, Big Waves on Lake Erie

There were high wind warnings in northeast Ohio yesterday, and when the winds blow big, I like to watch the waves churn on Lake Erie. We visited Mentor Headlands State Park, where the winds were much stronger than those just a few miles inland. The waves did not disappoint. The wind at the time was roughly 35-40 mph sustained, with gusts to 50. (Some areas reported gusts of 60 mph.)  As the crashing waves hit the wind,  they exploded in huge sprays of water.  We walked the dunes trail, and while the wind was stiff heading east, when we turned west to head back to our car, it was so strong it was very difficult to walk. But it was worth it to catch some of those waves! Here are a few photos.
