Went hiking and in love all over again with the brilliant sunlit green of midwestern woods. Don't get me wrong, I love love love the California out doors, but we just don't have the same kind of gorgeous hardwood forests here.
I only wish I hadn't been too early for fall colors. The brilliant red orange yellow against deep blue sky of a Michigan October day has always and will always take my breath away.
Also, remembered just how gorgeous Lake Michigan is.
Especially seen from the top of a crazy steep sand dune in the middle of the woods.
