Macomb Orchard Trail Birds

Take a winter walk on the Macomb Orchard trail. Discover beautiful trail birds.  From the hairy woodpecker to the many colorful finches.  The trail is a paradise of winged wonder. The best days are when the sun is hidden and a fresh snow fall has powdered the path. This is the time when you will see many of our feathered friends in the woodlands that outline the path.

Winter on Macomb Orchard Trail

The Macomb Orchard tail is a 24 mile long nature park. Its paved linear path is perfect for walking, hiking running and biking. The path was build on the footprint of the Canadian National Railway, from 24 Mile Road and Dequindre in Shelby Township to the northeast City of Richmond.

Treasures Mother Nature has hidden

Treasures Mother Nature has hidden

The streams along the Macomb Orchard Trail, near Washington, Michigan, flow at different rates and depths creating a lot of ice creatures and drama.  Mother Nature has hidden many gifts in the ice, and if you go out and explore you will discover some of her ever changing hiding spots.

I was amazed to find that Mother Nature had frozen a  trout in the ice. Look closely on the Right side and you will see the frozen entrée on a crystal ice platter.

After seeing the frozen trout in the ice, my walk along the trail became a magical adventure to see what else Mother Nature had frozen with her winter magic. My next find was one of the best a beached whale looking for the sun.

So as the winter temps drops and winds start to blow, remember that Mother Nature is busy creating hidden treasures for you to discover.

Bodie California Lamp Light

Only one light is lit. The ghost town in Bodie California is a dark place at night. With only one light in the old barn with oil this is going to be a long and spooky night.
