Where I stood..

At the Hartwick Pines State Park by Grayling, where Mark and I hiked and learned about old growth forest.   Those are little tiny pine cones by my feet.

We saw very tall old trees, 300-400 years old!

It was quiet and beautiful.   Just think, once all of Michigan was like this.

This part is newer growth, in the old growth area barely any sunshine gets through.

A fallen tree, supporting wildlife and making room for new trees.

A couple of trees along the path had been used to serve the human need to leave one’s mark.

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places Lynn Krawczyk spends her life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you’d like to join her by posting a photo on Sunday of places you’ve been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on her Sunday posts telling her where she can find you/your photo and she’ll add a link to her sidebar so others can find you. I am one of those that Lynn has badgered into joining her, I have changed it to “where I stood”, because right now I’m sitting in front of the computer, not standing anywhere.

One thought on “Where I stood..”

  1. I was there many years ago, its beautiful, but sad to realize that this little pocket of old growth trees are all that is left.
