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!
The photo above is of Glenn. He is one of the equipment operators (spends a lot of time in a grader) as well as maintenance (and I don't mean janitorial kind of maintenance...although he does sweep the shop sometimes!!).
Glenn is a HOOT to be around and you have to get up pretty early in the morning to compete with his sense of humor. I don't think I've ever met anyone as "quick on the draw" with a remark or a joke. We hope he doesn't decide to retire before we come back in the fall. I wouldn't want it to go to his head, but the reason we are coming back is because of him! (Shhhhh).
The reason for his "decor" in this photo is because of a story he shared with Dan and I; about a biker in Sturgis, South Dakota. It seems this male biker had nothing on but his leather chaps...and a Crown Royal velvet bag "around his junk". I didn't want to appear to brazen so I put the bow on the backside of his chaps.
And this is Wayne; our roping champion. He also is a heavy equipment operator and maintenance. He's the fella on the horse a few posts back. And he is an avid hunter. Wayne has a couple of deer mounts, a duck or two and a beautiful turkey tail, spurs and beard on his office wall. He will require a larger office at some point so the walls don't fall down around him.
