South To Allegan County

2010 12 20 Silver Creek County Park,  located on 134th Ave. about three miles east of Hamilton Michigan.

The most beautiful and unique thing about Silver Creek is that the entire park is primarily wooded and has 450 feet of frontage on Silver Creek, which is a spring fed trout stream.  Silver Creek Park is primarily an equestrian park,  320 acres in size, it connects to over 25 miles of horseback riding trails.
My sister, Marie and I walked the North trail, Foot trail, and Creek View trail.  It  was 26 degrees, we were out exploring for about 2 1/2 hours, we found Trailing Arbutus with its green, rough, beaver ear shaped leaves sticking out from the snow.  It was overcast much of the day, so not much for photos.  Still Fun, Fun, Fun!

Farmland still beautiful on a gray day.

You are so right - the day was beautiful. I'm glad the parks in West Michigan are as different as all the people who live here! Parks for mountain bikers and equestrians. Parks for hikers who want wilderness and city folks who just want to picnic close to home. I love West Michigan! M

You've been very busy posting. I didn't know there was a tunnel in Holland, it looks like the Big City.

Until about two years ago I didn't know of this tunnel either!
I'm surprised you didn't come across it on one of your bike trips.
