Originally, we’d wanted to go camping in Michigan this past weekend, but the forecast spelled rain/snow and general gloom. So we nixed those plans, and instead walked around Morton Arboretum.
The skies were overcast, but thankfully it wasn’t too chilly. We got somewhat lost in the maze by the visitors center for a bit, and when we finally extricated ourselves, we wandered along the mulched paths that brought us on a tour of the trees of Japan, China, Appalachia and through to the midwestern prairies.
Having fun with the beautiful leaves of the gigantic gingko tree
The grounds are huge – we spent 4 hours wandering around, and only covered maybe half the area
Afterwards, we went back to our place for an evening of wine and games by the fire. By the time we realized, it was already 330am and way past our bedtime. Good times though!
