One of my favorite walks with Baloo takes us along a ridge overlooking East Grand Traverse Bay. It's especially dramatic when the leaves are off the trees, because the views of the water are unobstructed.
This particular day was so lovely and clear that the sun sparkled across the water's surface leaving shimmering diamonds in its path.
Then, a little deeper in the woods and along another path, Baloo and I found this snag with wrinkly ankles. Don't you hate it when your socks sag?
We inspected it more closely and found even more paths that had been made under the bark by bugs - the whole stump was covered with these trails.
