“This is in the upper Michigan in an area called Houghton Lake. Behind the cabin on the lake is a small canal which has frozen over – to the delight of the locals. Skating on the canal became a party from early morning until nightfall. People sang, played instruments, built fires, sold goodies and were obviously having a good time. It was a warm and pleasant sight”.
– Chales Wysocki
