Explored! #86 on Flickr on Saturday, July 14, 2007. Thanks!

One of Michigan's treasures.. If you take M-28 across the Upper Peninsula, there's a long stretch of road along the edge of the Seney Wildlife Refuge. In the sixties, when I first vacationed in the UP, the trees were all scrubs, and quite frankly it was an ugly road, a super-straight highway through nowhere. Getting off the road to see the scenery just didn't seem like a worthwhile activity; better to hurry on to Tahquamenon, or Munising, or points west.

We didn't know any better.

On a June day in 2002, Joan and I found these fine skies, a handful of Sandhill Cranes, and many smaller birds. And an Osprey, patrolling low over one of the pretty pools.

A final note: Forty years later, the trees have matured and M-28, though still generally judged to be dull, is far more interesting. There's still little clue about these nearby delights, though.

Camera: Nikon N90s
