On Sunday I visited Interlochen State Park. While the park was more of well kept campground, I still enjoyed walking about and taking some pictures of various natural lovelies.
I walked along the nature trail in the park. The whole walk was riddled with pine trees and the scent was most intoxicating. I was immediately cooled by this scent, seeing as I associate such a smell with Christmas and snowy forests. A very simple trail, but I enjoyed it immensely.
This is a snag that had been struck by lightening and thus was rent apart for all to see.
A shot of the upper innards of the snag.
Aside from the plant life, I encountered some simple critters. Though common enough I do wish to share their sweetness here.
I know they are pesky, but I must admit that I dearly love chipmunks.
I mean, come on, look at that face!
Apparently they are common, but this is the first place where I have seen a black squirrel.
