We have been there several times and once with Kelly when she was younger. Now it was time to take all three girls. It was considered a "homeschool field trip."
When we stay at our family cabin, we always here this repeated thumping sound in the woods. We could never figure out what it was. It almost drove me nuts. What could it be? LOL!
In the nature center portion of Hartwick Pines there is hands-on and audio section where you get to hear the types of birds that reside in Michigan. One of the birds had that exact thumping sound we always hear. Mystery solved! Yet, silly me, I forgot to document the name of the bird and take a pic to put here on the blog. And do you think I remember the name? Homeschool mom FAIL! Oh dear!
Anyways, here are just a few pics of our adventures through Hartwick Pines. Enjoy!
