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!

This Catholic church was a beautiful sight to see.  It dates back from the 1800's.  Mass started about 30 minutes from the time we stepped off the trolley, so we had limited time to explore the whole interior.  And to tell the truth, when we stepped inside and I asked the receptionist if photos were allowed either with or without flash, I felt guilty even asking.  But yes, it was allowed, so here are a few of the inside shots....


  1. Beautiful church. Where did you find this jewel?

  2. You were nicer than me, I just took pictures without asking. LOL There was one lady praying and I waited until she left and then it was empty inside and I clicked away...loved it. It was gorgeous. I especially loved the color blue inside and all the stained glass. Just amazing!!!

  3. That is one of the more beautiful Catholic Churches I have ever seen. I like it better than our own Cathedral, actually. Thanks for the pictures.
