Hartwick Pines, Old growth trai, and logging museum
Today we tired out the kids by going to Grayling, MI to the Museum at Hartwick Pines State Park. At least I can say that the park pass on my plate got used this year. The kids really enjoyed it. Although littleman and Camryn had more walking than they bargained for. The Museum was small but hands on. They also had several tanned hides the kids could touch. Live animals we saw included birds, a chipmunk, a grater snake that almost ran into Jon, a badger hole, minnows, and two black squirrels. The logging museum was interesting. There were two men in old time clothes cooking on an open fire at the museum. It was all free with our pass on the license plate. Not a bad way to spend a saturday morning exploring.
