Augusta Covered Bridge
The Augusta Covered Bridge is also known as the W K Kellogg Forrest Covered Bridge. It is the entrance to the Lemmien Loop. A two and a half mile trail around the Kellogg forest. This thriving forest land was once an area of abandoned agricultural land. The goal of the forest is to provide an understanding of the forest research as well as the forestry itself. While I did not walk the entire loop, I did walk a short distance and enjoyed the views and learning from the little signs posted along the way describing the research that is being done. I hope to go back when we have more time and actually walk the entire loop. The area is maintained by MSU. We actually drove past the entrance to the area because we were looking specifically for the Kellogg forest and the sign noted that it was part of Michigan State University with a small mention of Kellogg Forest at the bottom (which we really didn't notice until we were passed the sign). Luckily we didn't go to far out of the way because I knew once we reached a certain cross road we had gone to far so we only went about a half mile out of our way. The next few days will be filled with pictures from this resent trip. Hope you all enjoy my trip as much as I did, as you read my posts over the next few days.
