Each year, in late summer or early fall, our family has decided it's time to hike the woods. I think it's a little cooler then and not as wet as spring. I love being in the woods, so it was a real treat to be able to move a little farther north at the edge of the Manistee National Forest. Last year my husband and I, along with our little Shih Tzu, took a nature walk in Loda Lake Wildflower Sanctuary. I was positive I had posted about it, but after an extensive search, found nothing. So here is my photo tour. Smell the leaves and wet moss, hear the crickets and tree frogs, and listen to the cicadas singing in the trees. Enjoy.
