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!

From the time we crossed the bridge till right now and for the next several days, we have been and will be in rain. 

We had to park in the rain in Rodger and Connie's side yard, in the hometown of Colon, Michigan.  We had to set up in the rain.  Because there had been so much rain, the yard is/was very squishy so we had a hard time getting level. 

By the time we got "er dun" we were soaked.  

But we are here, got a decent nights sleep and are ready to go visit with Rodger and Connie.  Did I mention Connie is an awesome cook???  She can make a plain sandwich into a gourmet meal..which is what she did for us last night, plus some awesome potato soup with rivels in it.

So yep, no truck trouble so far, and I will prove to you, weather permitting, that Colon IS the magic capital of the world!!

And I will eventually finish the alphabet of things I don't like or that annoy me.
