Hiking Excursions at Port Crescent State Park

Author’s Note: The photos featured in this post were captured in the beginning of April 2021. When I was a teenager I recall passing through Port Huron on a road trip with some friends into Canada.

The Random Animals of Belle Isle

Some of the critters that i found while roaming Belle Isle over the weekend. I must have spent a solid five minutes trying to capture a good shot of this ground hog. He kept sticking his head back into the grass. Don’t you just hate it when your model doesn’t wish to cooperate with you?Continue reading “The Random Animals of Belle Isle”

The Lone Swan

Fun fact: Swans often mate for life but there have been documented cases of swan “divorce.” I feel Swan Divorce Court ought to be a Netflix original series. I’d watch wouldn’t you? I’m not sure how old this particular swan is but every time i encounter it, it seems to be by itself. Makes youContinue reading “The Lone Swan”

The weather was so nice and sunny yesterday and I knew that if i did not head out to go hiking at that moment, I’d regret it later. So why take the chance?

SinceContinue reading “The “Secret” Nature Study Area”

Don Green Way Nature Trail

Update: I finally got around to whom exactly Do Green is. Or I guess i should say was, as he past away back in August 2019. Evidently he was active with the Clinton Township Historical Society and did research with regards to the canal. You can read his obituary here: https://www.vickfuneralhome.com/obituary/donald-green Author’s Note: I’m notContinue reading “Don Green Way Nature Trail”

A Weekend at The Clinton River Park Main Trail

This is one of those places that I continue to come back to because of how local it is but it’s also an area where I spent a good portion of my youth. So writing about this is giving me all the feels right now. Located in Sterling Heights Michigan this trail is approximately 4.5Continue reading “A Weekend at The Clinton River Park Main Trail”

Excursion to River Bends Park

River Bends park is located in the city of Shelby Township Michigan. The park encompasses about 850 acres of land. It’s a fairly big park. What sets this area apart from the other parks in the area is this place is free to visit unlike the metro parks that I featured in other posts onContinue reading “Excursion to River Bends Park”
