you can't get too much winter in winter // smitten studiowinter in michigan // smitten studioAs you may have noticed… I couldn’t get enough of the freshly fallen snow while we were in Michigan. More photos and my favorite winter walks after the jump…

Walking the trail to the beach in the summer, and sledding along the dunes in the winter, it is still one of my favorite parks (pictured in the last two photos as well as, here).

We also walked along a pretty trail in Rycenga Park, where the sun peeked out for just a second, shining on those tall pines in the second photo.

Sometimes it is so nice to spend time outside without having to share it with a million other people. Someplace off the beaten path. I definitely seek those places out as I crave that stillness in nature (flying my Michigan girl flag over here. :)) Do you guys have any favorite outdoor spots that only a local would know?
