Lecture Tour Day 9: Winter Park, FL to East Lansing, MI

Orlando - Chicago - Lansing

Off to East Lansing, Michigan via Chicago (flights 9 and 10). These were blissfully uneventful. East Lansing was beautiful -- the view out my hotel window was all of big mature trees turning colors, and I took pictures. The measure of the emotional and environmental health of a place is the number of mature trees it has. I can't stand brand new suburban subdivisions, built right in what was obviously a farm field, with nothing but a bunch of pathetic little saplings. Give me big, old, strong, beautiful trees.
