I took a couple hikes while up at the cabin last week. Here are some of thee photos.
First up, the South Long Lake Forest Trail near the south end of Long Lake. This is about 1.6 miles in length and mostly wooded.
It is an easy hike with well marked trails.
The color was a bit hit or miss, but it was a great day for a hike.
Second stop was the Whaleback Natural Area located just south of Leland.
After a bit of a climb, the trail levels out and heads to a Lake Michigan overlook and an easy trail. The view from the overlook wasn’t so good that day, but the trail was nice.
Heading back south, I stopped to capture this color.
This is an iconic sight along M-22, especial in the fall.
I drove to Maple City to St. Rita and St. Joseph Catholic Church, high on a hill overlooking the town and colorful trees.
Here’s a couple views from the bottom of the hill.
This was the view at an overlook on the way home.
Although the color was later than usual, it did finally appear and was spectacular. I hope you got out to enjoy it. I’m sorry some of my friends had to head home before the peak color hit. Maybe next year.
