|Looking north on 60th Street from 48th Avenue in Van Buren County.|
Well, luckily for me, the perfectly flat topography I was imagining turned out to be nonexistent in real life. Actually, Van Buren County turned out to be quite rolling in spots. While they aren't mountains, the Webster Hills are tall enough generate quite a thrill for low level risk takers such as myself. Periodically, I drive to the top, roll down the windows, 'push off', and let the wheels turn as they will until I get to the bottom. Sometimes, I might go as fast as fifty or sixty miles per hour! And sometimes, I just coast down with my foot on the brake so I can enjoy the view.
