Tenille writes that she took this:

Standing on the railing at the 250′ bluff overlooking the manistee river valley.  Locals know the area by the name “high rollaways,” a term born during the lumber boom around the turn of the last century. Lumberjacks used to roll logs, destined for mills in Manistee, down the hills into the river.

You can read and account of a winter hike at the Rollaways and view a map of the High Rollaways.
