Walk in Wooded Dunes


Despite gunshots in the distance, we had the path all to ourselves.

And what do we think or feel or perceive, anyway, that we call "timeless"?

Before Last Night's Wind


This is now the orchard on the west side of Novotny Road looked, down the hill from St. Wenceslaus Church.

Cherry Orchards, Leelanau County, Late October


There is a lot of variety in color from one orchard to another and one tree to another.
