Exploring Fabius Township and St. Joseph County, Michigan, with side trips all over this Great Lakes state

Good morning!

Greetings from our bear cub up a tree contemplating his world, our corner of Fabius Township.  He is another example of chain saw art and his creator lives in the next county over, Cass County, just west of here.

For history buffs, Cass County is named after Lewis Cass, a governor of the Michigan Territory from 1813 to 1831.  He was a military man who fought in the war of 1812, a member of Andrew Jackson's cabinet as Secretary of War, ambassador to France, Senator from Michigan, and the defeated Democratic nominee in the presidential election of 1848.  Turns out there are many places in the United States named after him according to this Wikipedia article.

  1. I am a big fan of chain-saw art. Saw lots yesterday in Cross Village.
