PASSPORT REGULATIONS NOW IN EFFECT
Starting today, you'll need to pack a passport for countries you've never had to before, including Canada. New government regulations will require air travelers flying into the U.S. from everywhere to show passports, including American citizens and citizens of Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda. It's a big change from just showing a birth certificate or driver's license. The State Department says its had more people applying for passports recently. The travel business roundtable says its own survey found only about 27% of Americans have passports. Canadian and Caribbean officials are worried the new rules will hurt commerce and tourism.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE; I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER HOW THIS WILL AFFECT WINTER TIME TOURISM IN CANADA. After all, I THINK a snowmobile permit in Canada is around $100. Now there is a passport ya have to get to even get into Canada. I can understand the need for all of this, but it is so sad that North Americas have had to resort to it.

- 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!
