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!

double rainbow

We had a wonderful, heavy rain last night and when it was all over, the sky to the west was bright pinks and reds with the sunset and to the east was the biggest rainbow I have ever seen.  It was a double rainbow; some of our guests even said they thought there was a 3rd rainbow, but I couldn't see it.

the beauty after the storm


  1. Wow! Gorgeous! I love rainbows!

  2. Beautiful shots! We got caught driving home from Norway [(MI) as if you didn't know]during the lightening storm with a pounding rain and winds at 66 mph. Even saw a couple of trees that were knocked down and several times saw branches on the road.
    'love & hugs from afar'

  3. Jeanette, thanks!!! It was such a joy to see. I wish I could have gotten the whole big thing in one shot! My camera DOES have a panoramic setting, but I've never used it so I guess I better figure it out!

    Cher, WOW!!! You guys were lucky!!! There was an awful lot of wind behind all those black ominous clouds that stretched from north of us all the way, as we could see anyway, to Newberry.
