Detroit Lake Was Not Our Cup of Tea
Although we had a really nice time at Detroit Lake State Park, we weren't sad to leave. It was too loud and frenetic with too many people--including large, multi-families mixing without safeguards--we felt like campers were being very territorial and disrespectful of everyone else who was there other than them. The main road past the campground was extremely loud and busy--thank goodness our campsite wasn't one of the many that were right next to it!. The lake often had boats zooming by that were so noisy you needed to plug your ears. There were groups of people openly drinking too much, being obnoxious and yelling back and forth--we even had a huge multi-family next to our site that thought it was ok to play music very loud and spread their stuff everywhere including the edge of our campsite. We actually had to complain about them; thankfully the rangers came over to enforce pandemic policies--to our great relief they left the next day and it was hard to resist adding "Don't let the door hit you on the way out!"

Granted, this place really would be perfect for water sport fans and families. It just wasn't for us. We like it quiet and intimate and want to be around like-minded folk who love nature, solitude and respect the peaceful revery of camping.

Onwards to a Favorite: L.L. Stub Stewart State Park!
A few hour's drive north brought us back to one of our top campgrounds, L.L. Stub Stewart. I've gone on and on about the wonders of this place. Hiking, biking, hanging out…and there's just so much more. It's a marvelous slice of heaven and we were delighted to have the opportunity to stay for nearly two weeks!

Today's Picture
I'm sharing an image of a common sight at L.L. Stub Stewart--mesmerizing shadows undulating over beautiful forest trails. There have been times where I couldn't progress more than a few feet before stopping yet again for another picture! :)

Today's Insets
My first inset shows a different trail we walked on in the park--there are literally dozens of them! My second and third insets are my last from Detroit Lake State Park--one of them is a collage showing a neon blue mud dauber wasp on creeping sage. The other shows a drying flower with others behind it in soft bokeh. There were many other pictures I wanted to process from Detroit Lake but I ran out of time and will have to revisit them down the road.

Thanks So Much!
I hope you are all doing well! I appreciate all of your visits so much and I hope that my pictures make you happy…please stay safe, warm and dry!

Das Hauptbild spricht mich so sehr an liebe Janet...dieses Stückchen Wald mit dem unvergleichlichen Licht zwischen den Bäumen und am Boden...die PiPs komplettieren das Foto...aber in dieses Hauptbild konnte ich mich sofort verlieben...es ist wunderbar!
Alles Gute und viel Gesundheit Dir, Janet :)

Wonderful light and shade and lovely lines from the tree trunks, I like the third insert with the wonderful soft colours and great details. I can sympathise with your description of the park living on a small island with to many people the popular places are not worth going to, with the relaxing of restrictions and overseas travel not an option at the moment it will be worse than usual

Fantastic pictures as usual, Janet. I'm not in the least surprised that you have to stop so often to take pictures - the scenery is just wonderful. I do hope you find a quiet campsite this time. I look forward to hearing about your trips and looking at your photos.

How was the fire damage? I thought Detroit got clobbered really badly in the wildfires last fall (surprised the park is even open!)

Fantastic light and dappled shade in this shot..................I love the trees standing straight like sentinels watching over the land.

I especially like the first inset - with the huge ferns and that wonderful narrow trail leading towards the light. The Mud Dauber Wasp is pretty cool too..!!

Really amazing !!! An almost mystical light. In my most comforting dreams forests always appear. Lost in the forest, the Swedish rescue services had to rescue me between the border of Sweden and Norway. A long story.
