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 heard you were going to a buffet place for turkey day."

"But maybe we heard wrong??!!  We better head for cover!"

"I AM NOT coming down until Friday!!"

"And you can't MAKE me come down!  But I might fly to a different tree!!"

Which he did and of course I was not ready for THAT shot!


  1. Those are some smart turkeys. i'd stay up in the tree-- very high up, if I was them!!

    Have a great Thanksgiving Cathy.
