Every so often I need to recharge: Go out into the woods, camping and backpacking, enjoying the quiet, the stillness. I recently trekked Up North to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to do just that, stopping off at some various points along the way—Grand Island was the destination. I’m working on a couple new projects and although they don’t necessarily have to deal with forests, I always find trees, the denseness of a forest, comforting and inspiring to my work.
These are some of my favorite photos from my recent adventures, for one reason or another, photos and images I come back to often in my head when I think about what I’ve seen and done, what I need to recall when I’m writing.
Moral: Michigan is one beautiful state.
