Todd (cedarkayak) was the 900th person to join the Absolute Michigan group on Flickr. I figured that since the kayak (which he built) was the basis for his user name, it made sense to select this photo of the South Manitou Island Lighthouse. He writes that he used a sail to speed the crossing from Glen Haven to South Manitou Island and this photo is part of his great North and South Manitou Islands set.
The 25,000th (!!) photo added to the Absolute Michigan pool is (fittingly) a photo of the aftermath of the huge New Year Snow Storm (4th biggest in SE Michigan history!) that David took in the Shiawassee Wildlife Refuge near Saginaw.
