  1. A Wonderful Leaf Day 2017

    A Wonderful Leaf Day 2017
    I took my family to the other side of Grand Traverse Bay — to Torch Lake, Bellaire and the farms, trails, woods and wetlands of Antrim County. It took some time to persuade the boys that this switch in Leaf Day activities would be worth it.
  2. Leaf Day Around the Republic

    Leaf Day Around the Republic
    Cherry Ambassadors around the Republic took full advantage of Leaf Day 2017. From baking with family and friends, to fishing in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, to driving a semi to Kansas City for our first holiday gift show of 2017. Here are some of our favorite stories...
  3. Sutherland's Leaf Day Adventure

    Sutherland's Leaf Day Adventure
    Due to the thunderstorm, we started out on our third annual Leaf Day hike a little later than usual. The boys wanted to hike the dunes, so my goal was to hit the most remote and difficult to get to spots on the dunes with this special day off from work and school.

  5. Cherry Republic's Leaf Day

    Cherry Republic's Leaf Day
    Leaf Day was created by Cherry Republic to celebrate the amazing colors of fall, and to take a day to reflect or enjoy the outdoors in the last of our good weather. We are all so busy all summer and into fall that we don’t often find time to just enjoy the outdoors. Leaf Day will allow us to do so during the most beautiful time of year in Northern Michigan.
  6. Hiking Beautiful Alligator Hill

    Hiking Beautiful Alligator Hill
    Located smack in the middle of Glen Arbor, Alligator Hill is an often overlooked jewel in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Its nine miles of hiking trails loop their way through some of the beautiful landscapes in northern Michigan.
  7. Hiking the Bay to Bay Trail

    Hiking the Bay to Bay Trail
    It's an epic hike. From south to north across the entire Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, hiking the Bay to Bay Trail will be an amazing experience. The trail's planned route runs from the south of the park all the way to the north and passes through much of its most stunning scenery. What an addition to the park this will make!
  8. The Great Bay to Bay Trail-Breaking

    The Great Bay to Bay Trail-Breaking
    A new hiking trail is coming to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. It's called the Bay to Bay Trail, and it will run the length of the park, from Platte Bay at the south end to Good Harbor Bay at the north end. We're trying to raise money to help it happen!
  9. A Walk to School

    A Walk to School
    A speaker at a TEDx event in Traverse City said that the average child from his African homeland walked to school 10 miles. After I heard this fact, I couldn't help but think of Steph and I walking to school with our two young boys. Colebrook, a kindergartener and Hawthorn, a preschooler. A couple weeks later, I woke my family...
  10. Forest Warriors

    Forest Warriors
    Continued from the 5/31 Orchard Report email newsletter ....I have to pull the leaves out from between his toes. The sky starts thundering and lightly raining. Before one of the boys asks to leave, I say “The animals can’t hear us in the rain, we’re sure to catch them.” The whole world is a feast to our eyes-- dusky plush...
