Cranes with Chick


At Hudson Mills Park, we saw this pair of nesting cranes -- you can just make out their chick in the reeds nearby.

New Canoe Channel in Huron River

The old spillway was in trouble, so they built this beautiful channel next to the river, eliminating the need to portage a canoe into the river below the dam. Some of the narrow places look a bit rough -- we'll wait and see how it is when canoe season really starts. This is going to also be a great path for bikes or walking: both wonderful sports in Ann Arbor.
