Wilcox-Warnes Presreve HIKE – Reviewed

January 31, 2011

We had over 30 hikers show up for our Michigan Nature Association hike at their new Nature Preserve, out at the Wilcox-Warnes Nature Sanctuary. It had snowed almost 3 inches the night before, so there was a nice covering of snow everywhere.

Kathrine from the MNA was there in answer questions, along with Martha and other MNA personal. Mike led the way in his snow shoes, to pack down the snow a bit for the rest of us. This worked out well, with the freshly fallen snow.

It was beautiful out in the woods in the fresh snow. We discovered a large area of Turkey tracks. The local clock had already been out that morning foraging around. We stopped by a Great Horned owl’s nest, but no one was home.

After the Hike, a few of us went over to near by Rochester, for the FIRE & ICE Festival. Ice sculptures, Snow shoeing, Food and Fireworks where just some of the activities there. An excellent winter day!
