Dave has lived in the big city for the past 20 years, so he doesn't get many chances to get out on a forest trail. We caught a small break in the rain and went for a little hike on the North Country Trail
The only real color item was fungi. Yellow.
Brown or orange.
I particularly liked this one which is white if you look at it from one side, and dark brown from the other. It's almost hard to believe it's the same thing.
This is the area where there was a big blowdown 2 falls ago. The logs have been salvaged, and now it's just open.
Then we went out to eat and stuffed ourselves. A little more visiting and then Dave had to leave, but it sure was neat to spend some time with him when we weren't dodging around the chaos of everyone visiting at his house for the Flower Show.
Beautiful blue dusk. I love it when I can catch a picture just at the right time to get the blue.
In other news: I managed a tiny bit of writing and editing, but it was mostly a day to spend with a friend.
North Country Trail, Lake County, MI, South from Timber Creek at US to Wingleton Road and back. 3 miles.
