Florida Trip – Crossing the Border

We left Toronto early Wednesday morning and headed for the Windsor/Detroit border crossing. The roads in Toronto were pretty messy with a combination of ice and slush making loading the bikes onto the truck and general packing activities a bit treacherous. The highway driving wasn’t too bad as salt trucks and plows had been out in force and the road was pretty clear. Got to Windsor without incident.

We used the tunnel to cross under the river and then headed south on I-75.

Close enough yet, Tom?

Kensington Park and Indian Springs Park, Michigan, USA

I was following the Fall bird migration along the north shore of Lake Erie in Ontario and then crossed over into Michigan, to visit fellow photographer,Tom Helfrich. Once I found his house in West Bloomfield, Michigan, we planned out a photographic outing to Kensington Park and Indian Springs Park, two of Tom’s favourite stomping grounds. Tom and I spent the day in Kensington Park and Indian Springs Park in Michigan State, two parks which are part of the Huron-Clinton Metroparks system a few miles north of Detroit, Michigan. Although it was a bit late in the season to find Massasauga Rattlesnakes, which we had hoped to find in Indian Springs Park, we found just about everything else.
