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.
Interesting place to take pictures in downtown is the Southern Michigan Railroad Train, Tecumseh. Rides are available from Tecumseh to Clinton and back duration 2.5 hours. Fall schedule is Saturdays 11 a.m.; 1:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. For more info on the train http://www.southernmichiganrailroad.com/15.html
On the way back you can drive along Old US 12 and you can stop and take photos of antique stores along the way.
