Consider the Pines of Michigan

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow….even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Matthew 6:28-29

A sampling, taken from the great forests of northern Michigan.  Hartwick Pines has ever escaped the logger’s ax and remains essentially as Michigan’s forests  appeared to the indigenous people and the first French explorers.

      some of the trees in the bottom pic are over 300 years old and 100 feet high. I have the feeling of being in a cathedral or other religious place when I walk there, which is about 3 or 4 times a summer
