Les Cheneaux Guardian

Doug Schwentor's avatar Doug Schwentor

I return to my interest in nature. On the point of a peninsula in the Les Cheneaux Islands near Cedarville, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula stands a unique tree. Most people pay attention to the Straits of Mackinac in the background, but I noticed the unique bark on this tree which I christened The Guardian. I was fascinated by the unlimited design possibilities it presented. I had a great deal of difficulty selecting only two options for this exhibit. I will provide some additional photographs of the tree bark on a separate panel so that you can appreciate what captured my attention and imagination.
