(OK, children of the '60's; who sang that song?? Feel free to post your response! Points will be assigned! Just like on "Who's Line Is It Anyway"!)
There is a brand new chapel in our neck of the woods..and I do mean woods.
The log chapel is 20’ x 20’ and was constructed this summer by volunteers from the Newberry area and beyond. The dedication of this chapel is today, September 24th.
The chapel was designed by Duane Goltz of Drummond Island, Eugene Ardouin of Sanford, MI, Ed Eastwood of Little Lake and Richard Robinson, owner of Rainbow Lodge. The chapel is located on Rainbow Lodge property about ½ a mile from the Mouth of the Two Hearted River.
The building features a clear glass cross inset directly into the logs and large alter board taken from a nearby Lake Superior shipwreck.
“The dream of building a chapel at this site goes back to the mid-eighties when we started conducting monthly vesper services out here with the help of area pastors,” said Kathy Robinson. “Richard and I are so happy to be making this chapel available to our guests and to everybody who visits this beautiful area.”
The chapel will be open for use during the summer months and at other times when weather permits. Its use by groups must be scheduled in advance by calling the Rainbow Lodge at 906-658-3357.
(For those of you who think the Mouth of the Two Hearted sounds familiar and you can’t figure out why, it was made famous by Ernest Hemingway…one of his favorite places to relax and fish. The Mouth of The Two Hearted is about 30+ miles N of Newberry on CR 500. When our downstate friends come up for a visit next month, we hope to make a trip up that way and I’ll have photos for you at that time).

- A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!
