Creepy swampy place, if there were wild orchids here they stayed hidden.
I met this cute little guy
Showy Goat's Beard
We made a few more stops along Red Pine Drive heading north then east on 20 mile road to Spring Lake. We were able to drive right to the lake on a two-track to a gravel surface boat launch.
Spring Lake in Kent County
There were tadpoles here.
We found a late blooming Wild Columbine. There was much more Ninebark here and For-Get-Me-Nots.
We walked through a Pine forest and found Common Shinleaf not quite blooming, saw this mushroom.
Then back on the road for home. Nice adventure.
