It sure is starting to feel like winter in South East Michigan. We received a small sprinkling of snow to match the chilling wind chilled temperatures. I headed out to explore a few of the parks in Ann Arbor that were recently with gorgeous fall foliage.
I had a great time at the BriefCase. App Launch Party. They had a terrific turnout at Vinology in downtown Ann Arbor. BriefCase. is an app to organize and annotate briefs via the iPad. Here are a couple quick photos from the event:
The pool coping has arrived at the Ann Arbor Skatepark. Since the 10th skatepark update the crew has continued working on the street-side of the skatepark. I thought they did an amazing job incorporating rocks into the concrete features. For more information or to donate: – a2skatepark.org
