My friends Don, Diana and I headed to the Grass River Natural Area.  The 1,492 acre nature preserve is located in Antrim Country.  Home to northern fen and cedar wetlands, the area is full of birds and other critters.  Boardwalks make the trails navigable in all kinds of weather.  Yesterday was perfect.  We watched two mallards as birdsong filled the air.  We hiked to the river’s mouth, hoping to see loons but it was too early in the season.  We did see a bald eagle, migrating swans and a turkey vulture.  Among the three of us, we had three new knees, a bum ankle, and a bad case of sciatica but we still managed to walk 6000 steps, according to Diana’s watch.  Can’t wait for the next big adventure.
