City of Tecumseh Sign

Here is the last of the canoe trip.  This “City of Tecumseh” sign sticks out of the pond on the northern end.  It reminds people they are still within the city limits and fire arms are not permitted.  It’s possible they’re shooting on the Tecumseh Township side, which is further north however, I have found shotgun shells in the woods – clearly within the city limits.  I often hear gunfire around this area, which makes me super sad because it makes the “locals” very skiddish.

At the very northern end of the pond, there is the Southern Michigan Railroad company’s railroad trestle.  Here’s a picture of the bridge below.  After this picture, we had to make a dash for home since there was no moon, and the darkening twighlight soon dropped us into a dark, inky night.
