As late spring develops and summer begins to roll around the corner, get outside and be a part of the Michigan out of doors. There is endless opportunities to connect with natures fresh air and it’s beautiful scenery. Whether is be scouting for gobblers, spinning for spring smallies, or simply taking a brisk walk through a woodlot, you can only begin to grasp the beauties Mother Nature has gifted us with.
Waking up to the Robins chirping, the Osprey squalling, and the sun rising in the east are some of the best things a Michigander can ask for. Spring time is in full swing. The birds are back, the kit fox are on the prowl, Mallard young are on the move, and the fawns are out to play. What more could you ask for? Head to the UP and take a hike in the Porcupines, canoe down the Grand River, or even go for a comforting Sunday drive to head north and see what all the buzz is about. In a world full of hustle and bustle, slow your day down. For it is in that moment when you can truly see the great wonders that the Great Outdoors has presented before us. Whether you are into the outdoors or not, be a part of it. It is then when you can say, “I am part of Pure Michigan”.
