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 hear that our friends "to the north" are expecting 8" of heavy wet snow.  Let me know if it actually happens.

Yesterday, we finished up mowing and whacking, then cleaned out the govt. truck we'll be using and washed it.  Since we still had more than an hour before our time was up, we asked Carolyn if there was anything else we could do.

She asked us to check the two nature trails for down trees and brush.  One trail is .8 and the other .6.  No big deal.  HA!  UP and down, over and around...and it had to have been over 75 degrees.  My hair was stuck to my head from sweating and about 1/2 way through Mother Nature decided to call.  Kind of hard to tend to things on a slant, if you know what I mean.

By the time the end was in site I was miserable with heat and the other....and to get to the office was mostly UP hill.  I truly thought I would not make it.

After I had Dan drop me off at "home", I took a quick, more or less cold (because I was over heated) shower.  NOTHING EVER FELT SO GOOD!

Today, we may become movie stars.  There is a film crew coming to the refuge to film parts of the refuge and we may be used as "extras".

We've got a cold front coming in with temps only in the upper 50's and nights in the upper 30s.

I hope to post a few more photos this a.m. before we take off....

  1. These places sure look like they are part of the last century...what is the population of the areas you have been showing us? Dan's butt looks like he lost weight. (Just sayin') LOL Glad you made it to the bathroom on time, we don't want anyone there to think Yoopers can't hold their body excretions, you know!! LOL
