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!

Tahquamenon Falls 4/2/09

I haven't used my Flick'r account in a LONG time and can't remember how to post more than one photo at a time from Flick'r to Yarns. So there could be about 4 or 5 more entries if i don't figure it out!

There was still about 3 foot of snow on the pathway to the Falls but in places it was slushy and "hard going"...but so worth it. The water was roaring over the rocks and crashing at the bottom.

  1. How beautiful...I have never gone there in the spring!

  2. Retired One..they are beautiful any time of year, but I especially enjoy the autumn.

  3. Wow! It amazes me the difference of the color and amount of water that flows over these falls between summer and winter/spring.

  4. Ashley, we had a guest here a while ago that thought the color of the water was due to it being dirty. If you've been to the Falls, you've most likely read the sign explaining the color of the water being due to tannic acid (hope I spelled that correctly) from the trees. In the winter when it is almost frozen and it very frozen at the bottom, it looks like a HUGE root beer float!
