Photo Challenge, Wanderlust: That Subtle Something to Renew a Weary Spirit

On a Michigan summer’s day, wanderlust can lead you to varied tracks and traces in the seemingly endless woods.

Photo Challenge:  Wanderlust

Pigeon River Forest, Michigan

…meandering in the pine forests of the North or the hardwood stands of the Southern part of the state.

Matthaei Woods, Michigan


It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
–Robert Louis Stevenson

    My spirits weren’t weary, but I enjoyed these anyway. Today we’re having that sort of weather where it appears a downpour is imminent, then a few minutes later, it’s sunny. Back and forth. So far, no rain. 🙂

      Michigan has many such places. On a summer afternoon, there’s no need to hurry. You can just hike at your own pace and let the serenity take your thoughts where they might go. Glad you stopped by. You have some marvelous photos on your blog! 🙂

      Still waiting expectantly for the onset of greenery and warm weather in the forested northern part of the state, which is usually 2 to 3 weeks behind Detroit area.
