I'm so tired of all the rain, but we do need it. The grass is really green now and the leaf buds are just waiting to explode. The weather forecast is calling for warmer temps...so at least that is good news. I was just going through some image files from last summer and I keep going back to this image. It is my favorite sunset photo from last year. This was taken near the overlook on the Mio Pond. The locals call it the backwaters...it is part of the AuSable River. The pond is held by the Mio Dam...it is the first dam on the AuSable River. There are 5 dams on the AuSable River...Mio, Alcona, Loud, Five Channels and Cooke. The river is a great fisheries and really enjoyable to float down. I will be doing some canoe camping trips this summer on the upper part of the river. I should say above the backwaters. This part of the river is truly beautiful.
