Here's a peek at Aman.
Coming up to the northern bridge
Sand Creek was froze here.
The sycamore trees really stood out. After crossing the bridge we took the blue trail toward the north end of the park, no wildflowers. We sat for a while and listen to all the birds singing. The sun felt good.
Sand Creek. We spent 2 1/2 hours at Aman and walked around 2 miles. We didn't walk the trail that follows all along the creek, which is my favorite, because there was no trail in the snow. There is still a couple of feet of snow on the ground.

Well we didn't see any start of a wildflower at Aman. So for a sure sighting of the first spring wildflower, we made our way to Hemlock Crossing. Here is a good place to find Skunk Cabbage.

First wildflower for Marie and I in Michigan for 2014, Skunk Cabbage!
Pigeon RiverI've been pretty comfortable at home, with a book in front of the fire this winter, but this was a perfect day to be outside. Thanks, Marie.
