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!

    Looks like a very relaxing place to cap. We love trees, trees and more trees...and grass. Why so many spots in campgrounds now are gravel?

  2. It is not green like that here yet, but woooo-hooo it is supposed to get in the 60's tomorrow! I have 3/4 of my lawn raked (my back and fibromyalagia are my witnesses!) and hope to finish the lawn tomorrow...then on to grooming my flower gardens..and it is still March. wow.

  3. Anonymous, WE think it is a relaxing place, even with kids running around. It is very peaceful, lots of birds, sounds of nature.....just natural.

    Retired One, I'll have some raking to do when we get back, but we gave up raking the campground. I KNOW I'll have 50 fire pits to clean out with all the leaves that get in them!!

    I can see why you might be a little ready to head home. Hope you have a safe trip.
