Quick Pics of Grand Ledge

grandledgebrian.jpgRecently, Brian and I (as The Fabulous Heftones) performed as the entertainment for a wedding reception in Grand Ledge, Michigan. This is a lovely older town west of Lansing which has stayed beautiful and vital. They have a real appreciation for the historical there, including a wonderful old opera house where this reception was held.

Behind the opera house is a river and a park area. I got a few photos just after we got our gear unloaded, before the bride and groom arrived. This photo of Brian pleases me a lot. He’s in the tuxedo he usually wears for our performances, on the back walk of the opera house.

After taking the shot of Brian I turned to my right and photographed the downtown park on the banks of the Grand River (which also flows through downtown Lansing). Very pretty!

Grand Ledge is named that because of some rock formations there (not unlike the dells in Wisconsin Dells). These are popular for local rock climbers. They are in a different park (Fitzgerald Park) which is really beautiful. Grand Ledge is particularly lovely in the autumn, though I think I have never taken any photos there at that time of year.

    You brought back a wonderful memory! The first time I ever went rock climbing was at grand ledge. Although I climbed higher, longer faces later in the Smokey Mountains, Japan and California, I still remember the thrill as I made it to the top the very first time at Grand Ledge. As you said in your other post, I thought I could, so I did :-}
