The Big Sauble River empties into Lake Michigan about 1/4 of a mile from where this image was taken. From the Hamlin Lake Dam until the fast-moving and dangerous Outlet, the Sauble is slow-moving and shallow--perfect for a leisurely float on a tire tube in hot weather. My son Eric and I spent about an hour walking on one of the trails--and hardly saw a soul. This time of year, after the tourists have gone home and the days have grown colder, it just feels good to be near it.
