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'll give you a clue...it isn't mold on bread!!!  YUCK!!

do you know what this is?


  1. We happened to take a walk into the woods today and we saw this. I think it's lichen budding out. Am I right? Did I win a free nights stay at your campground? lol jk

    My thought is lichens too.

  3. Retired One, it does kind of look like coral, doesn't it? Not saying just yet...

    Cher...tomorrow I'll post another photo or two and we'll go from there.

    Gary, THERE YOU ARE!!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??! You and tractor guy have missed some song titles and lyrics! Wait and see on the photo.
