I have always been an admirer of the great and wondrous trees on the campus at Michigan State. This close up of the scale-like bark of an American Planetree outside of Dem Hall has an artful quality.
Ed and I spent part of the afternoon on campus where we stopped by Dem Hall to see Peter and Clay. I had my first opportunity to walk through the galleries at the incredible Broad Museum, too. We needed a day to "get out of Dodge" and State is a good place to visit.
