Thumbwind is a personal project to show the highlights of a true gem in the backyard of Metro-Detroit. It wasn’t too many years ago when a working blue-collar family could purchase a lot and park a camper or build a cottage near the shores of beautiful Saginaw Bay in the Upper Thumb. At almost at the same time family’s could expect a lively hood from the family farm in Huron County. As pioneer homesteaders in Huron County my family had both. Now, several generations later those family farms and rustic cottages are waning in favor of turning this land into a Green-Zone example for industrial energy production and a corporate farming enterprise that only pollutes and spoils the Tip-o’ the Thumb”.
