Among the Trees

Follow me, let's get lost We'll sneak away out into the woods Running quickly just before the dawn They'll never know how far we've gone Places familiar becoming unknown The trees become denser, this feels like home   Poem and photo mine: Traverse City MI 2017

Captivated

Gazing over the open water led to a captivation of my mind. Thoughts became clearer than the soft spoken whispers being carried through the wind. I tried to reach out but could not create a sound, perhaps my voice was lost, just yearning to be found. Pictures\poem are my own. At a rest stop south… Continue reading Captivated

Sleeping Bear Dunes (2007)

Wow, has it been 8 years already? The summer of 2007 my parents took me at my two best friends at the time to Sleeping Bear Dunes. It was a wonderful trip. We turned everything into a joke relating to dunes...you had to be there 😛 There are many neat trails and scenic lookouts throughout… Continue reading Sleeping Bear Dunes (2007)

Afternoon Stroll

I've been at my parents home most of the day (laundry day, oh joy!) And I took a lovely walk this morning. Behind the woods on the other side of their neighborhood is a sub division that was never built. The road was cemented in a big loop, but never any homes. It makes for… Continue reading Afternoon Stroll

Fairytales

Dreaming of a place.... I took this at Watkins Glen State Park in Upstate New York, circa 2013. One of the most stunning parks I have ever visited.

Travel Thursday: Watkins Glen State Park

July of 2013 I had the pleasure of visiting Watkins Glen State Park in Watkins Glen, New York. This whole trip began with seeing a restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and road tripping it to Syracuse, New York. We figured while we were there, might as well do some sightseeing! Side note: Those rueben… Continue reading Travel Thursday: Watkins Glen State Park

St. Johns Marsh

And finally the day arrived: First hike of the season! No rain or snow, but still a tad bit chilly. Logan and I headed out to St. Johns Marsh in Clay, MI. The trail is free for anyone and has a lot of wildlife. Right now it is still too early to see a lot… Continue reading St. Johns Marsh
