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 SAID GOOD BYE TO TWO MORE POUNDS!!!  Working the wood pile has paid off!  19 pounds and counting!


  1. I'm doing the happy dance for you in hopes I can shed a pound or two without having to make firewood. lol
    'hugs from afar'

    GOOD FOR YOU!! Do you have a goal in mind??

  4. Woo! Hooo! 19 pounds. That's wonderful. Congrats!!!

  5. Cher, I'm glad we are about done with that wood pile. About the only thing good that has come out of it is exercise!!!

    Mel, you COULD try rubbing two sticks together (using your feet and not your hands) to create fire from the firewood! That should burn some calories!

    Anonymous, no goal in mind just to the point where I think I look better and know I'm healthier.
