About Me

My photo
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!

We've been so busy with all the fire updates that the changing of the season from summer to fall has snuck up on me!
I have started to update the fall color report (there is a link on the right hand column to that report) and it won't be long (I HOPE!!) before I'll be updating the Eastern U.P. Snowmobile Trail report! So with that in mind, and due to all the emails I've been getting about how the fire has affected the trail system, here are some teasers for you sled heads!
I haven't read anything yet about what the Weather Wizards think will come this winter. And, if we're gonna go by "old farmer signs", I have NOT seen any caterpillars. But it does seem like there are less humming birds this week than last week. We haven't seen any red wing black birds in a LONG time, no robins (probably went in search of worms where there has been rain).
We are DUE for an old fashioned winter with our normal 176" of snow! We should have snow for Christmas! Shoulda, coulda, woulda...we all know ya can't fool Mother Nature, Old Man Winter or White Precipitus!
As far as how the fire has affected the trail system...it wasn't even at the trail system so no problem with that.
As far as the pictures; the kids on the sled are self explanatory. The picture of the group of guys was taken last winter here. They were guests in our Little Lodge and cozy cabins. The one of snow and headlights is a groomer out grooming one of our trails. The one of the groomer operator in the groomer is self explanatory. Hubby Dan isn't sure if he will be grooming this winter or not. It depends on how his knees do....so far so good!
Catch you sled heads later!
