Tour de Thumb

Took an out-and-back 65-mile ride in Michigan's "Thumb" region today.

A former resident once told me, "It's a place where the 30's lasted until the 60's, a great place and time to grow up. Now it's a bedroom village - the business district is a ghost town."

Ah, yes, I love those ghost towns most of all. They are like little time machines to me and I'm fascinated by the remnants of that bygone era.

I have a feeling there's more to discover...
