8/30/17 City Forest

Back to the Beaver Pond at City Forest. Kelley was not excited about hiking but was willing to go to the beaver pond. So, a few pictures of Kelley in the water and some flowers and bugs

A tiny hoverfly

More chicory

First time in

More of an endless series of Queen Anne's Lace

One I don't I know


We started on West Trail but didn't get far before Kelley would not proceed.

Back to the pond

Another unknown

One last dip

A pleasant little outing even though Kelley was not really interested in hiking.


  1. Chicory and Queen Ann's Lace has always been my favorite combo. We had gobs of them in Illinois along every country road.
    Though we have both here in Michigan, it doesn't seem to be as abundant.
    Great photos, John.
    Glad to see Kelley is still getting around. (and you too!)
    Have a great weekend

    1. Thanks for your comment Sue. I really like Chicory and QAL too. Port Huron had a chicory roasting plant when I was growing up.
