The Best Things in Life are Free


They say that the best things in life are free. Sometimes I think the best views in life are free.

Case in point, just a few miles south of Mesick on the east side of M37 is one of these best views.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) offers a roadside park on the Hodenpyl Pond.

  1. pond is formed on backwaters of the Manistee River behind the Hodenpyl dam.

 For your exercise, try the recently constructed stairs to the waterfront.
