MUNISING - Fifteen-year-old Marlie Birr of Manistique sat near the banks of the Indian River Saturday afternoon, watching quietly while her horse pulled hay from a small bale. Birr was taking a break at a vet check along the 50-mile course of the Pine Marten Run, an endurance and competitive horse event held for seven years now in the Hiawatha National Forest.
"A day like this is really nice," Birr said, smiling as she looked up into the sunlight.
