Had we known we'd have been here years ago! If someone had said that there is a place where worries disappear-Mother nature is in control, you rest, smile and soak and enjoy a sunset like you're seeing one for the very 1st time, they would be referring to The Mary Ellen and this fantastic Lake.
Thank you for Sharing!
