I'm fairly certain it should be easy to distinguish me. There aren't that many David Veselenak's out there.

Nothing wrong with hitting the Holland State Park beach in March
The lighthouse on the shores of Lake Michigan near Lake Macatawa at Holland State Park. The last time I was at Holland State Park, the beach was full, the water was full and the sky was lit up with patriotic fireworks. It was a far cry from that Saturday af...

Still no snow at Island Lake State Rec Area
The Huron River in Island Lake State Rec Area. It's been several years, but once again, my annual trip to Island Lake State Recreation Area near Brighton saw no snow for the middle of January, just like 2013 . What to do, what to do. It's still an annual re...

Happy New Year from Walled Lake. Here are some ice boats.
An ice boat on Walled Lake. I went for my somewhat weekly walk along Walled Lake this morning, knowing I needed some exercise with the holidays. I was surprised to see what looked like sail boats out on the lake as I approached it. While walking along East ...

Geocaching at the tip of Michigan's Thumb is a great way to spend a weekend
I'll never get sick of looking at the Lake Huron coastline, no matter where I am in Michigan. So much is made in Michigan of what is "up north." Be it the argument that "up north" begins at the Zilwaukee Bridge, or at the Mackinac Bridge or what have you. S...

Not far from home: A day trip to Brighton State Recreation Area
Bishop Lake at Brighton State Recreation Area. So much is made of going "up north" (and no, I won't make you define what "up north" means ) in Michigan during the summer, and for good reason. There's something special about the lakeshore, the woods, the riv...

Negwegon State Park: A jewel on Michigan's Sunrise Coast
A look north along the trail toward South Point at Negwegon State Park. A sign for the Pewabic campsite is passed by our group hiking. So much is talked about when it comes to west Michigan. The Lake Michigan lakeshore is a beautiful part of the state, comp...

A view of the wolves in southeast Michigan
One of the wolves at the Detroit Zoo. It appears Royal Oak has as many wolves as Isle Royale does now . My wife and I stopped in at the Detroit Zoo this afternoon, a place we've grown to love in recent years. We stopped in at feeding time near the gray wolv...

Flashback Friday: Backpacking Nordhouse Dunes on Lake Michigan
The sunset over Nordhouse Dunes last May. A map found on trail. The weather is (supposedly) warming up in Michigan, though I swear it's snowed more so far in April than it did in January here in my Oakland County home. But warmer temps are coming, and that ...

Time to come back: photos from our new home near Walled Lake
The sun sets over Walled Lake March 25, 2016. A long, long time. That's roughly when I last updated this page. That can't happen anymore. Life gets in the way. Moving, family, work. It all gets in the way of spending time doing side work, like updating this...
