Haven Hill Lake was created for Edsel and Eleanor Ford in the 1920's. Cedar Creek, a part of Michigan's Huron River watershed, was dammed on their property to create the lake in the 1920's. The outflow runs on to fulfill its destiny as a part of the Huron River eventually flowing into Lake Erie south of Detroit, Michigan.
The lake was a source of beauty and recreation for the Fords and their family and guests, and now remains a beautiful body of water in the Haven Hill section of Michigan's Highland State Recreation Area. The aerial video was filmed using a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter and a GoPro camera in the month of February.
"Ice Stars" can be seen all over the surface of the frozen lake. These are locations where water surged up through a whole in the ice and created the spider or octopus like patterns on the ice surface.
