Krista – This year I’m finding myself grateful for the seemingly endless amount of wild and natural spaces Washtenaw County and Michigan have to offer. The forests, meadows, dunes, and rivers of this state have provided me with so much perspective and peace during a tumultuous year, and I’ve been lucky enough to share them with the people I love.
