The Comden Towle Model Forest
I was looking for a photo to post and came across an old folder full of pics and old memories of the model forest and I thought I would share them. You may not have a model forest near your home but I bet you can find some place to take a nice walk through the woods, so go enjoy this life.
Memories of walks in the woods
My family had a great habit of going for a walk in the woods, sometimes our own woods, sometimes Michigan State land, and once in a while to this great little model forest.
I took my kids there many times to spend a wonderful afternoon walking in the woods. My kids liked the walks, and enjoyed playing checkers too.
I went there many times for solo hikes there for the peace and quite, so I could clear my head. Sitting by the pond or watching the deer in the field always helped calm my mind down.
I took my wife (at the time future wife) on a date there, walking hand in hand down the trails. I hid flowers along the trail, and we did a scavenger hunt and had a picnic lunch.
The Comden Towle Model Forest Montcalm County Michigan was and I hope will be a big part of our lives for many years.
