We have had some hot days in Michigan, 90 degrees in May! Marie and I ventured outside anyway, into the heat, humid, and bugs. As usual it was a good day, we wandered Port Sheldon Natural Area for two hours. Then to Hofma Park and Preserve for two more hours! It was so green, trees, grasses, ferns, and moss.
Port Sheldon Natural Area is 440 acres including gently rolling terrain, woods, wildlife ponds and Ten Hagen Creek. Ottawa County Michigan.
