It’s in the air

Just up the street from our new park, the Bear River tumbles over a low dam and down a narrow concrete channel into Lake Michigan.

We were surprised to find the small bridge swarming with fishermen in the morning as we left for the day. What was it?

Up the road a little ways, we passed some maple trees that were already in “full song.” As we passed, I noted what a great picture they’d make…then said wait, wait, wait, why pass them?

So, turned around and got this picture for you.

We were on our way to Pond Hill Farm, located a couple miles into the Tunnel of Trees north out of Harbor Springs.

What a great place! Adults like to visit for the vineyards and wine tasting. Kids like to visit for the pumpkins, pig races, baby animal barn, and….just everything!

In the meantime, there’s always a memorable sunset over Little Traverse Bay, looking past the Petoskey pierhead lighthouse….
