Roadside Distraction

img_2529(Casco Township, Michigan) So there we were heading north in the fog toward Country Life Natural Foods in exciting Pullman, Michigan, when we spotted a vaguely familiar sign announcing the Casco Township Nature Preserve.  “Let’s stop,” I said.  “I could use the facilities, and this place looks like a good birding spot during migration.  A little scouting is in order.” And indeed this preserve on Blue Star Highway north of South Haven was just the order we needed that morning as it offered a clean restroom and a paved path to an overlook on the bluff of clay overlooking a fog-bound Lake Michigan. We saw nor heard nary a bird, but we did stretch our legs while watching the fog stretch its tendrils through a lovely stretch of duneland. We shall return when the migrating birds return and issue another report.  Meanwhile, please enjoy the following:

Still life at Casco Nature Preserve.

On a foggy day, you cannot see forever, or even the lake for that matter.

The sign says it all.
