Hidden Lake Gardens, Tripton MI

Hidden Lake Gardens are indeed like squares on a quilt, a paradise in a park, an escape from the everyday world. The Gardens are 755 acre (3.06 km2), a botanical garden and an arboretum operated by Michigan State University situated in the Irish Hills of southeast Michigan. The Garden features include greenhouse complex, lake, picnic area, 6-mile paved scenic drive, thousand of labeled trees, shrubs and flowers. Featured indoor plants include: bamboo, banana, cocoa, coffee, and vanilla among many others. 

More info on the garden can be found here http://hiddenlakegardens.msu.edu/ 

We will spend few hours there walking around the grounds and photographing beautiful fall landscape settings. Gorgeous 6miles scenic drive, big botanical garden, lake, etc.

After we can go into Tecumseh downtown to grab late lunch/early dinner if anyone is interested into doing that.

    I went to Hidden Lake Garden Last week and it was wonderful. The colors should be even better this weekend. I hope everyone has a great time. By the way, there a lots of great barns on the drive to the garden.

    Meetup has been rescheduled for October 12, 2013.
    Sorry for the inconvenience but the 5th didn't seem to be convenient for most. I'm going to give this other try. Hope you can make it.
