Since we pass by Hartwick Pines State Park most times we head north, in 2008 we decided to make it our August destination.
The park’s famous for its tall pines, one last stand saved from the loggers by the daughter of a logger to honor her late husband. When I was a kid the stand featured The Monarch, Michigan’s tallest tree. The Monarch’s died, but the remaining trees are still impressive.
The park could just as well be famous for its stump fields, a different testimony to Michigan’s natural resources.
