My sister invited me for a visit and as we were talking about things to do, I said I would like to visit the Chippewa Nature Center. I hadn't been there in about 15 years and then we didn't venture much beyond the visitor's center as it was winter.
We hiked the river trail, which oddly enough, ran along the river for quite a bit. This trail is 2.7 miles long and was a very nice walk. There are over 15 miles of hiking trails within the 1170 acres of the Chippewa Nature Center. We only hiked this one.
The water was shallow and clear
If you need to stop and lean against something or grab it for support, don't choose this.
There is a small area with period buildings. They weren't open so we were stuck taking pictures of the outsides of them. This is a typical home.

This was a one room schoolhouse.
And perhaps my favorite building, the sugar house. Here sap from the sugar maple is rendered down into maple syrup

I have had an interest in photography since the time I was a young boy going to take photos with my father. In high school I purchased a Nikon FE2 and grew to love it. Today I still take pictures, though not as often as I used to. I'd rather get one decent shot than shoot dozens of pictures hoping for a good one. If you see anything that interests you, let me know. Most of my pictures are available.
