Winter on Belle Isle

With the holidays upon us, I like to take time out to cache in some of my favorite winter wonderlands. When geocaching, take time out to enjoy the view!  Here are some pictures of my favorite spot: Belle Isle.  Belle Isle is situated in the Detroit River (you can see Canada from here!) and is Michigan's 102nd State park.

Shinola has installed a new clock outside the Belle Isle Casino

One of several bridges spanning the interior river - each one different

Another fabulous and photographic bridge on the Isle

The Scott Fountain is secure for the Winter

Freighters are very common on the International Waterway
That's Windsor, Ontario in the background

If you're in the area, check out Michigan's 102nd State Park for caching diversity! Each year (near the end of March) the Belle Isle Cachers hide approximately 45 new caches, blanketing the island in the Detroit River.  On that one day a year, you can cache both last year and this year's caches!

The Nothwest corner is Detroit - Southeast is Windsor, Ontario
