Jeff,
Thinking about places to go while up there. Have you ever been to the Belle Isle Botanical Society place? http://www.bibsociety.org/

Wonder what it would be like in the winter? Do they allow tripods?
Let us know.

I image this place is better in the spring to fall time, but what is this like?
