From a morning paddle on the Nysinyd Chute.
Nysinyd is not an anglicized misspelling of a Native American term. It’s an acronym for “now you see it, now you don’t”. This passage through the Muskegon River grasslands appears and disappears on an almost daily basis depending on water level and plant growth.
With all of the high water, it has been more accessible in the last couple weeks than during most summers.
