I spend a lot of time outdoors every year. In part, because my work takes me there. And, in big part, because I love being out in the natural world. I’ve been that way for a very long time. Having lived in cities most of my life: Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing and Grand Rapids, I find respite in forests, on remote mountain trails, and while paddling on lakes, ponds and rivers far from the urban environment. This short tribute to Nature expresses some of my sentiment about getting out, and the curious wonderment I experience when I go. If you get a chance to visit, by all means go. –HM

Funny, when I was stationed in the UP Rudyard was right outside the back gate. I remember driving with snow everywhere and a crisp cold blue sky with snowy owls on many telephone poles in the morning light.
