Today I drove into the Fort Custer Recreation Area outside of Augusta, Michigan to do a little bit of hiking with my dog.   When I pulled in there was a new sign greeting visitors.  It was a painted sign featuring a black bear and bigfoot. Apparently in the 1980's there was a bigfoot sighting her...

Perhaps one of the most beautiful flowering trees is the dogwood.  I came across this one in a forest here in Michigan last Spring, and took this photo.  Years ago when I lived in Georgia, I remember having purchased my first home in the winter.  When Spring came I was pleasantly surprised to fin...

This morning it is snowing in Southwest Michigan where I live.  Rather than write about the snow, I thought I would write a blog about a tree that has facinated me since the first time I ever laid eyes on one.  It is the Dogwood tree.  I first saw these in Georgia when I moved there in 1984.  My ...

I spend a lot of leisure time (when I can find it) taking walks through the woods.  One of the local places I like to venture off to is the Fort Custer Recreation area between Battle Creek and Augusta, just inside Kalamazoo County off Dickman Road. There are hiking, biking and horseback riding tr...

In April I went for a walk at Fort Custer State Recreation area which is a forest in Kalamazoo County Michigan, just outside of Battle Creek.  It is a great place to go mountain biking, hiking and horse back riding.  I went there a lot on weekends in 2011, and have not been able to get away as mu...

This past weekend I went to the Fort Custer Recreation area to do some hiking.  I had not been able to get out there in several weeks, and since that time the leaves have changed and fallen.  The seasons have shiften from late summer to autumn, and so of course, took my camera with me for some ph...

I have been going hiking (and sometimes mountain biking) a lot on weekends in the Fort Custer Recreation area between Battle Creek and Augusta, Michigan.  It is a nice way to get out and get some exercise and see a little of what Mother Nature has to offer.  Here are some samples of some of the p...

I know I have written a lot about the Fort Custer Recreation Area recently on my blogs.  It is something that I consider as a valuable local resource for Southwest Michigan, and the park is located between Battle Creek and Augusta Michigan. I have gone on many summer hike there this year to get o...

One of my favorite forms of excercise it to go hiking on the trails of the Fort Custer Recreation Area located between Augusta and Battle Creek, Michigan.  The park contains over 25 miles of trails that are used for mountain biking, hiking, jogging, and horse back riding.  In the winter the trail...

I was out in the Fort Custer Recreation Area hiking some of the trails this past weekend and paused for a drink of water, and took this photo.  I thought this tree has such character, and decided to include it here.  This one happened to be right off the trail, and easy to see.  The forest is qui...

This past weekend I decided to take some time alone and return to one of my long forgotten joys in life which is hiking.  I have not found many places to hike in the last few years, and oddly enough, there was a place very close to Battle Creek that I had not explored.  The Fort Custer State Park...
