AuSable River Tour

On Saturday, we went exploring the Au Sable River.

It is so beautiful. It is a National Scenic Roadway.

Along the river there are several hydroelectric plants.

The Lumberman's Monument

Going down 270some steps to the river.

The view was worth it.

Next we visited a monument dedicated to a canoe marathon.

We ran into Jeff's co-worker Ray who took a family photo for us!

Next we headed down to the Iargo Springs.

Jessica wanted me to get the dragonfly's picture

Iargo Springs! Beautiful & worth the walk down the hundreds of stairs.

Beautiful shot of the river.

Beautiful tree tunnel near the river.

We had a wonderful family day enjoying just a little of God's Awesome Creation!
