Our New Bike Trail From My House to Lake Erie

On Monday I rode my bike on the new "River Raisin Trail" to the Lake Erie shoreline. It's 5-6 miles one way.

The new trail ends with a 1.5 mile ride through woods, past ponds, to the lake. It's beautiful. And, yes, we have a number of bald eagles nesting in those woods.

The trail will eventually and officially extend to Munson Park (we live across the street from it), the the Navarre-Anderson Trading Post and the oldest house in the state of Michigan, and then to Monroe County Community College.

There's a nice article on this project in today's Toledo Blade.
