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!

SMOKE ON THE WATER

Well, not smoke exactly; more like fog.

I'm speaking of my favorite lake. Lake Superior. There have been some very pretty mornings with a fog blanketing the Greatest of the Great Lakes. But it is a sad image that we are seeing now...and each year (heck each MONTH) seems to get worse.

Biskit had posted some photos a while back of Lake Superior "shoreline"...and where there SHOULD be water, there was now beachfront. It made me feel so badly that I could not even finish looking at the photos.

If you click on the link I have provided you, it will take you to a story about Lake Superior at the all time low in recorded history. The article goes on to state that Lake Huron isn't far behind. As much as we all want snow, I hope it is NOT lake effect snow and that we get a LOT of system snow.

Anytime I have the opportunity to be at the shoreline of one of our Great Lakes, I can't help but visualize what it was like when the Native Americans lived, hunted and rowed their canoes here. And I wonder, how sad they would be to see things the way they are now.
