Photo Challenge: Great Lakes’ Humble Beginnings

In the Great Lakes state, there is an abundance of liquid attractions.  But, even Lake Superior, which could easily pass for  a freshwater inland sea, has its humble beginnings in laughing springs and rippling brooks.   A few of Michigan’s modest tributaries for your viewing enjoyment.

    I always smile when I read or hear the word “tributaries.” Our younger daughter was enamored of that word for some time. From such humble beginnings come great rivers and Great Lakes.

      How kind of you to say that. The top two photos were taken in the same vicinity–the liquid shown eventually reaches Lake Huron on the eastern side of Michigan–and I hope to re-visit before long. The third pic shows a creek that runs into Lake Michigan, just off-camera–that’s on the west side of the state.

      Thanks very much! Glad you enjoyed the pics. We’ve had a late and cool spring, but I hope to revisit the location of the photos soon. And listen to the water. 🙂

      You’re fortunate to live by such a river. When I go to work, the drive winds along the Detroit River. It’s not quite as charming. 🙂 But, this time of year there are the ore boats on their way up to Lake Superior, so there is that.
