DIA Day

Enjoyed a day trip to the Detroit Institute Of Arts in beautiful midtown Detroit.

Always bring a bug-out bag.

Ape Rill Show Hers

You’d think all I do is hike but you’d be wrong.
Not in this case, however. Another one out at Proud Lake State Recreation Area.

Drenched.

Throwback Catch-Up

And thus ends the 2016-2017 season of the Lake Pointe Skate Report.
It melted. The End.
Onward to spring hikes and weblog catch-up. Here’s a selection of shots from February:

Looney Moon

Back on the ice. Did about 5 miles late in the afternoon, and then headed out after dark to try to observe the partial Lunar Eclipse. Like an old Pink Floyd album, it was ‘Obscured By Clouds’ until long after it rose. The skating sure was fine anyway. Put away another 5.5 miles after dark. Took some photos, naturally, and here they are.
