Sunken Lake July 4, 2014

Sunken Lake Park is a county’s largest park, having 160 acres of serene beauty, virgin timber, and walking trails that lead to unending discoveries of wildlife, generous scenery, and hours of relaxing escape. There unique rock formations, historic sinkholes (see below), and relics of the lumbering era are to be found. There is a picnic area and fishing from the rustic covered bridge will offer many hours of relaxation away from the present pace of today’s world. It is a great place for the nature lover, bird watcher, rock hound, and all for a step into the past.

Below are pictures of the park, sinkhole, walking trails, and scenery.

A sinkhole, also known as a sink, shake hole, swallow hole, swallet, doline or cenote, is a natural depression or hole in the earth’s surface caused by karst processes – the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks. Sinkholes may vary in size from less than 1 to 300 meters (3.3 to 980 ft) both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. They may be formed gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide. These terms are often used interchangeably, though many distinguish between features a surface stream flows into and features with no such input. Only the former are described as sinks, swallow holes or swallets. A sinkhole on a glacier is called a moulin or a glacier mill. In the United States, the most damage from sinkholes tends to occur in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. Palmyra, Pennsylvania is the sinkhole capital of the United States.http://www.crystalinks.com/sinkholes.html

We were camping by the 2.5-acre Bruski Sink it was donated to the Conservancy in 1996 and made part of the Thunder Bay preserve in Alpena Michigan.
