In a tragic car accident, two students of the University of Michigan lost their lives in a trip to the upper peninsula of Michigan. I have never met them. But when I first came to the US and joined the same university in 2003, I believe I was as touched by the beauty of this country as they were, and I was equally careless and unprepared. Around the same time that year, we set off for the same trip. We were safe on the road, but there was an incident when we did not bring a headlamp for a late afternoon hike. We got out safely after dark, thanks to my perfect night vision at that time, only to find that the car battery had died because I forgot to turn off the headlight. Of course there was no cell phone signal.

Regardless of all the trouble, I got obsessed with the beauty of nature ever since. Visiting the UP of Michigan in the fall became an annual trip for me. Time sure flies. It is the seventh year already, and I have graduated. This time I flew back for the road trip again, to make a video for all the good memories I had there. I was shocked to hear the news one week later. I'd like to dedicate this video to those who deceased, and those who love nature as much as I do.
