Deadman's Hill, Antrim County (10-23-07) - dwhike
I wandered off the trail a ways and found this beautiful spot along the Jordan River...

I wanted to get out for a fall hike before all the leaves were gone. This is one of my favorite hikes in Lower Michigan and what was left of the colors made it even more beautiful...
