North Leelanau County From Low to High


We've experienced a cool-down in temperature and a slow-down in crowds. While Bruce was at the shop, I took time to do errands and a little county cruising and rambling. These are some of the sights on a sunny, windy Wednesday at the tail end of August.









How many invasive species did you see? Did you see the wind?

I was just going to ask if this was at Peterson Park when I saw your tag! LOL That purple spikey thing is invasive..can't remember it's name. Are swans invasive? I don't know. And yes I could see (and smell) the wind off of the lake. Miss it.

Loosestrife. As for the swans, I wanted to put a link here to one of the Torch Lake Views posts but am having trouble getting that page to load.

Okay, it still won't load for me at the moment, but here's the link:

I tell you, WordPress and Blogger do not play nicely together. That's OK. We are grownups and can rise above the situation. Of course I love this post and will have to post a link to it. Eventually we'll wear them down.

I really am curious about how the trees in Peterson Park grew so twisted. It's pretty impressive. What I truly envy, though, is the height of your dunes and bluffs. It's lovely to see that perspective. All good.

Gerry, we will rise above the problems, sneak under them, run around or slog our way through. I have to think the wind encouraged the trees to bend this way. What else?
