Boardman River Trail

After the event today, I went for a little hike along the Boardman River in Traverse City.

This is in an Educational Nature Reserve. I'm not going to show you some of the pictures of the river. They have recently removed two small dams to let the water run freely, but the former bottoms of the ponds that were drained aren't all that scenic at the present time, with quite a lot of geofabric erosion barriers.

There were a couple of kayakers. The water is quite swift.

I liked the fuzzy white seed silk on this grass in front of the brown oak tree.

The staghorn sumac berries were brilliant.

Beech leaves are rich.

About peak color there.

I hiked out from the Lone Pine Trailhead, and did all the trails you can access from there. A little over 3 miles.

In other news: I did OK at the event today, not great. Good event, lots of traffic. Who knows? And I feel fine, which I'm thinking you can guess since I went for a hike.
