I suppose most of the rivers I show you look pretty much alike. But you've never seen this one here before because I was sent east to do cases out of my area this week.
This river is about 13 miles long and is located in Osceola County. It's a tributary of the Muskegon River. It, and the town of the same name, were named for Nathan Hersey, the first white settler in the area. He came in 1840.
Two other quality events occurred as part of this same work day. I came as close as I ever have to getting stuck with my AWD Forester. Managed to dig out and get out of that not-quite-a-road.
As a result of that incident, the Anti-Lock-Brake light came on and stayed on. Manual said if it stays on for about two minutes it's recharging its battery. If it stays on longer, your regular brakes will still work, but you need to have it serviced. Said a few prayers and after the next time I turned the engine off the light went out! Whew!
Finally, the surface of the river had some great ice patterns. I love stuff like this!
