Bear-ly There!

The Bear River goes right through the middle of town. There are only 4 bridges that cross the river, so if you want to get from one side to the other, you have to go on one of those 4 streets. The top of this bridge is one of the main highways in Northern Michigan and there is a lot of traffic on it every day. But few ever see the beauty beneath the bridge. There is a lovely hiking path that goes along the river for about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile through town. When you're on the path, you would never know you're in the middle of a city; it is quiet except for the water rushing by and the birds chirping in the trees. Such a lovely summer hike! You should try it sometime!

What a lovely picture. It looks like a nice way to spend an afternoon. Water is always so relaxing.

I just came over from PDP blog, will come by another time, and check out your blog. It looks quite interesting.

Have a nice evening.

Christie - re Sainte-Geneviève at PDP:
Here is a little history about here, and here are more photos. When "Louis" lived in Paris, he lived very near this statue.
