Bass River, way over there
Bass River meeting Grand River
These next four pictures are of a Honey Locust, Gleditsia triacanthos tree, I think.

Honey Locust tree pictures above and below
Bass Lake, some places I have seen this lake called Max Lake.
Woodpecker activity, no woodpecker
Lichen on a tree (at least I think it is lichen)
This looks like liverwort, but I don't know...
I just liked it.
Bass Lake on the right, Grand River on the left, this is a narrow piece of land, don't get off the trail here.
Across the Grand River is Bur Oak Landing (Ottawa County open space land) you can see the boat launch.
That's a sycamore tree, and a willow tree.
I think this might be a Cecropia cocoon. Here is a site to find out more,
In the center of this picture you can see a car parked at the end of North Cedar Drive (about 9/10ths of a mile away).
Where Bass Lake and the Grand River meet, the sandy point is Riverside Park.
Sign on the point
Now we are heading back, and we pass the sycamore and willow again.
A very nice Sunday afternoon walk.
