It takes ~1 hour 40 minutes from my house to drive to Dowagiac Woods, this is a Michigan Nature Association Sanctuary.
This is a sort of magical place, maybe because it's too far from home to visit often making it more special? Any way it was another beautiful day to be in the woods.
This sign was near the entrance a few years ago, now it's gone.
Here are more pictures from Dowagiac Woods.
Buttercup, I didn't ID what kind, buttercups have shining petals.

A very good day.
