Shore Ice on Lake Michigan

West Michigan with its prevailing winds used to have spectacular ice formations like this one every winter.  I took this photo a few years ago and I always watched ice building up, usually beginning Thanksgiving.  But I have not seen this in recent years.  The weather has been too warm

White Cedar Lives a Long Time

White cedar on the Door Peninsula in Wisconsin.  This tree is not large but it is old.  It can withstand strong wind and waves, cold winters and hot summers as it clings to layers of limestone on the shore of Lake Michigan. White cedar  (arbor vitae) can live for over 800 years.  It's a hardy tree indeed.
