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!

I have a friend who married and moved away from Newberry several years ago. We'd kind of lost track of each other, but recently another friend and I were talking about Sandy. I found out that Sandy and her hubby were "into" photography so being the photo nut I am, I had to find out more.

I have since been in touch with Sandy a couple of times and she is having a wonderful life and seems to be enjoying herself, her marriage and her new excitement of photography.

So with that in mind, I have added Sandy and her hubby's blogspot to my list of blogs I follow, but here it is in case you want to go check it out now;


Once you have viewed the photos and story line there, you will find a link to their Flickr photos.

Hope you all enjoy the shots too!!


  1. Thanks for the lead on her blog, Cathy! I went on and added her as one of my favorites...I haven't ever been to Colorado, so I will love following her pics...
    Yep, I got your emails....we seriously have to get together this summer sometime!!!

  2. Retired One..Sandy will be glad to know that. And YES! Let's get together this summer (whenever the heck that might be!). You'll have to come this way becuase once we open for business I can't leave!


Thank you for visiting Yooper Yarns and leaving a comment!
