ust returned from a week at Seney Wildlife Refuge in the U.P., and Wilderness State Park, near the bridge. A completely nature type of vacation. Little to No people, and nothing but wildlife and plants and trees. Not to mention the fabulous sunsets on lake Michigan.
Also spent a little time in Petosky near Harbor Springs and Boyne. Wonderful Nature Preserve there, along lake Michigan. Rare plants and trees, and looked after in a fanatical manner. The Thorn Swift Preserve is worth the trip alone. Located just before the Tunnel of Trees along the coast, north of Harbor Springs.
After this very active Nature vacation, I need another vacation just to actually rest up. Worth every moment. Oh Yatemps around 73 degrees, with no humidity and that always present slight breeze off of lake Michigan. The PERFECT weather conditions!

5 "Skipper" butterflies on one thistle. They where everywhere.

One of the many Dam/Spillways that control water on the Ponds and Pools that make up Seney Wildlife Refuge
Many of the sandy shorelines at Seney, contain high iron concentrates, so they have an orange color
The Refuge is located south of Pictured Rocks in the U.P.
