The Pennsyvania Coast: Lake Erie and Presquile
http://www.goerieblogs.com/other/presqueislenaturally/ Here is a good link to pictures and natural features of Presquile, PA.
The French name, Presquile means almost an island. It is a spit of land built by the wind and waves and the wind and waves change its shape continually depending upon the storms and water levels of Lake Erie. It is dynamic--always changing.
There is a hardwood forest of oaks, hemlocks and ash trees and on the damp forest floor ferns and mushrooms of many shapes and colors push up through the dead leaves. It's a good place for bird watchers.
In the summer, people flock to its sandy beaches.
