S

pring is the time of new life. After hunkering down, the deer and turkeys begin to browse. The beaver return to their never-ending work, converting the birches on the shore of their ponds to complex carvings with pointed ends. The snowbirds return, ready for a taste of real life; they haven't changed a bit. Wildflowers appear in a sequence orchestrated by God that passes human understanding.

S

ummer is when to greet your friends from the year before. Summer is the time of people, who journey here from downstate, the surrounding states, or winter retirement homes. From seemingly every state, and foreign countries as well. Everyone returns who's able to, with plenty of first-timers mixed in, swearing they too will be back.

F

all on Beaver Island is marked by apples ripening in the abandoned orchards, the foraging of herds of deer and the cackling of the Canadian Geese stopping by for a week or two on their way to the deep south.  As the leaves change color and cover the ground with a splendid carpet of color, and the air grows more brisk and the time more peaceful, beach walkikng gives way to hiking in the woods, gathering firewood, and hunting season.

inter is the quiet time. Driving around, unsuspected homes appear in the woods. Snowmobiles take you to parts of the Island's interior that go unseen the rest of the year. Out on the snowy wilderness trails on cross-country skis, you can hear the last withered oak leaf drop, or the call of a distant bird.
