Year 2 – January 27, 2013 – Shiver On the River
The 26th Annual Saginaw Spirit Shiver on the River, Walleye Fishing Contest began yesterday. Yesterday, when I was driving back from Frankenmuth, I saw these people and tents in the middle of the frozen Saginaw River, so I made a point to visit today. This is another event that has been going for a long time that I never took the time to visit thus today will be another first. It was very interesting really, to be able to walk in the middle of the river. I would imagine not too many people have seen something like this. The picture above would be very hard to take (in the middle of a boat maybe) but on the frozen river, that was a breeze.
They didn’t name Shiver On the River on a whim – because it was quite cold. After about half an hour walking on the river, I found it quite hard to speak in clear sentences because my face was frozen.
