Ausable River

Rivers are roads which move, and which carry us whither we desire to go.

This is quite a well known river downstate, I have seen it too.
We used to live in Paris, Michigan on the Manistee River (I think that was its name) and it was a lot of fun living right on the river. Our Irish Setter would go for daily swims and there were tons of canoe-ers that traveled down past our house too.

Oh the nostalgia! Many times I canoed the Au Sable, watched fishermen entice a trout to the lure, prepared a simple breakfast near its banks. It has been my standard for canoe rivers for years, with few others coming close. Favorite is the south branch.

Nothing is better than a nice flowing river. Hope you have been able to enjoy your summer and your cabin so far.

Sure looks different in the spring time compared to all those pretty frozen scenes we kind of don't want to remember from winter!! :)

Thank you everyone for your comments and stopping by! This River is one of my husband's favorite places to fly fish! :-)

Very beautiful. I just love photographing water. My husband and I got to Arizona every year to visit his family. Last year we took a drive through the mountains and we came across the Salt River in the Salt River Canyon. I could have stood there for hours just listening to the water rush over the rocks. Of course I also took lots of photos.

Hello Shelly. This looks like a stunning place. I love the duck on the raft below this too. :)
