Higgins LakeComments Off on Higgins Lake
Now know as Higgins Lake, the native Ojibwe called it Majinabeesh–sparkling water. A fitting name for this large spring fed lake in Northern Michigan. Though it reaches depths of 135 feet, the south end of the lake has an extensive sand bank that suddenly drops off hundreds of feet from shore. I let my canoe drift in the gentle breeze while I captured shots of the dappled sunshine on the shallow sand bottom.
