Today was the actual hike. Here's what the water lilies look like in morning light.
There were five of us- a nice size group.
Quite a few interesting plants. Here is Racemed Milkwort, Polygala polygama. It's a cousin to the gaywings that bloom in the spring.
Also found Smooth Ruellia, Ruellia strepens, a nice wetland plant. In fact it was growing right in the water.
Little Leverentz Lake was making nice reflections.
And I got a pretty good picture of the closed wings of the Red Spotted Purple Admiral butterfly.
We hiked about 5 miles. The weather was quite nice- you'll never hear us complain about that!
In other news: I worked on the trailer in the afternoon. Making progress. You'll see, soon.
Sheep Ranch Pathway, near Baldwin, Michigan, about 5 miles
