The calendar says it's fall, but the temps disagree. Buckle up folks ready or not it's officially fall today but take a drive or walk and you may also be confused. You will see some signs of fall yet be sweating profusely it is hot outside; it is also beautiful.
Life in Michigan has a way of keeping us confused and on our toes.
Get out and about it's a good way to maintain the body and mind healthy! Peaceful, beautiful, and I am grateful I can walk and get out and about. I am also grateful for nature's beauty that surrounds me.
One woman told me "no way, it's too hot, are you crazy?" The truth is mornings and evenings have been very comfortable temps. Enjoy now before well; you know what comes next.
You don't have to be in great shape for a nice stroll and beautiful scenery. Each step is a step toward your mental and physical health.
Just about anywhere you can see some beauty. One place I finally explored a few years ago is the Heritage Nature Trail between Kenwood park and The Carl T Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center. It's a leisurely stroll or more intense if that is your style but for me, this time is more a casual exploring than a physical workout.
Woodland trail, water, a raised lookout for the more expansive view all lend themselves to a peaceful stroll. This week I saw a turtle, frog, duck and yes, the beginning of fall color. Most of us think of those beautiful sweeping vistas of color when we think of fall. I have found just a snippet of color, much like a moment in time, a beautiful splash of beauty and memorable point. Early fall offers just those snippets to whet your appetite and soothe your mind before that final peak arrives.
It is true, life in Michigan has a way of keeping us confused and on our toes. Get out and about this weekend and explore natures glorious bounty.
This is how it went on my walk recently...
