Miller Creek Natural Area

Yesterday I took a most pleasant hike around the Miller Creek Nature Preserve, located in the heart of Traverse City. As always, I was beyond thankful that such places exist in abundance in Northern Michigan. Head downstate, and preserves become sparse. Population density certainly becomes relevant.

Preserves and natural areas are priceless resources.

The best moments at preserves are those that seem to take you to a different place, where just the moment in front of you matters…nothing else. No work, no stress, no nothing. Just the world around you and its inhabitants living their lives the way they have for countless years.

They have it figured out.

I brought along my Panasonic FZ-20, and was keen to find some interesting subjects to capture along the way.
