CASS COUNTY - PHOTO OF THE WEEK

     Take a relaxing ride on a Sunday afternoon and you just might drive down this scenic little bend in the road and across this one lane bridge. It will be prettier in a month or so, but for now at least there's no snow on the ground and shades of green are starting to appear. Do you know where in the county to find this road or the name of it? Hint: It truly was a pleasant drive in the country.
