We woke up to thunderstorms. Driving into utica, the apple maps again malfunctioned, the contraption taking us up a hill over town. The postman said it was due to the roads rerouting in 2004 following a destructive tornado. The rain abated and we drove to matthiessen state park.

Etta and I walked the leafy bluffs around a canyon and then took wooden stairs down its limestone walls. The path followed the creek and we stepped on stones and in clay. I think they are part of the same rock formation found in the upper peninsula. On the way home we stopped at Johnnie’s and got a combo with sweet peppers and Italian ice.

    Through the rabbit hole and rough rocks, down where the water ran.
