Great Lake Trip – Day 14 – Michigan
Ann Arbor Michigan
This our last day in Ann Arbor. After our long walks at The Henry Ford yesterday, we decided to take it easy today. We set out to explore the town before heading south tomorrow.
Bandemer Park and Disc Golf
We found a disc golf course online and headed out to try our hand at a game.
It turned out to be a nicely laid out 9-hole course. The morning was cool, and we had a fun game. A good change of pace after all the touring.
The tees were all concrete, each with a broom to keep it tidy. Each basket had three tees, Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.
Right across the highway was the Barton Nature Area. We walked across the bridge into the woods and took a long hike.
This is the Huron River, that flows into Lake Huron.
About half way along the trail we came upon the Barton Dam, a small hydroelectric plant. It is one of four hydroelectric dams on the Huron River. The city of Ann Arbor bought the dam from Detroit Edison and restarted generating power in the 1980’s.
We drove through the University of Michigan campus some and stopped to take pictures of the modern stadium.
It was time for lunch, so we went to the old part of town and searched for an appealing place to eat. We noticed a lot of young people on the streets, due to the University.
We finally decided on Bandito’s Restaurant. It was nothing fancy, but the food was pretty good and the service fair. It seemed like a place that the locals would come.
Tomorrow we head towards home, leaving the state of Michigan behind. Out next stop is on the other side of the river from Cincinnati, in the town of Covington, Kentucky. I’m looking forward to spending an hour or so with one of my Premium Members of ScientificRemodelingSystem.com who is growing his remodeling company in Cincinnati.
