Autumn Walk in Matthaei Botanical Gardens

Beautiful photo by Zohair Mohsen

Look who we spotted doing a little fishing in the pond across from the visitor center

One of the best places to enjoy fall colors around Ann Arbor, is Matthaei Botanical Gardens.  A couple of weeks ago, we did a walk on a Thursday morning, and we had the paths to ourselves.  The colors were just starting, but in the last couple of days, it seems that the maple trees have exploded in color!

We used the Map My Walk app to track our progress, and we did a big loop and a little loop that equalled 2.57 miles in a little over an hour.  I get slowed down a bit when I have to skid to a stop every few minutes and take a picture!  

Be sure to also visit the display gardens, right next to the visitor's center.
