Happy Friday! This week we want to share a few photos of where I (Michael) grew up – Houghton Lake, MI.
- Houghton Lake is the largest natural inland lake in Michigan at about 20,044 acres or roughly 26,450 football fields.
- It was originally called Roscommon Lake, renamed after Douglas Houghton.
- 30 miles of shoreline – it’s only 23 miles to Harrison!
- Residence time of 1.2 years – I had to google it too, don’t worry.
- Average depth of 7.5′ – a shallow lake.
The Backus Creek (pictured above) half-moons our house. My Dad often tells me stories about Sucker fishing here as a youngster. He also likes to refer to it as the “Mighty” Backus. For those of you who are local readers, I know you’re chuckling.
Below are a few videos of the area that I took with my drone. Looking back on it, the videos are some of the first I ever created. I hope you enjoy them!
Happy Weekend! Go on an adventure. Make some memories. Seek the unScene.
