Great hike today with seven of us meeting at Pentwater Pathway. One awesome thing was that we attracted several new people who came because this trail system is easy to get to. Because it's a ski trail system there are multiple loops. This made it possible for us to hike together for a while, then one group split off- those who wanted a shorter hike. They returned after doing about a three mile loop.
Four of us continued on and did the six mile loop.
Have you seen these caterpillars on milkweed plants? They are milkweed tiger tussock moth caterpillars (Euchaetes egle) and often eat milkweed late in the season.
I came home and slept all afternoon since I had almost no sleep after work before the hike. I think I'm headed to bed early too!
