Burt Township School Forest Hike

Yesterday my exercise partner, Lois, and I drove into the school forest, parked by the bridge, and walked down Sandy Lane to the west.  This road follows the Sucker River for the first part, and then turns northwest toward the Lake Superior shoreline.  We didn't make it the whole way, but had a nice hike.  Yes "hike."  Warm temperatures melted a lot of the snow.  It is amazing how little snow we have on the ground, since this time last year we had many feet of snow.  But as I type it is snowing out; we are supposed to get 1-4 inches.  Later this next week, though, we could get two feet of snow.

We walked past the wide bend in the Sucker.  This is where my kids caught their first brook trout.  

When we decided to turn around and head back to the car, we noticed this interesting structure in the woods.  It appears to be half a house.  We do not know where the other half is.
