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!

NEW UPDATE

THE FIRE IS CURRENTLY AT 21114 ACRES AND TRAVELING EAST.  THE DNR HAS CONFIRMED IT HAS CROSSED C.R. 500 IN TWO LOCATIONS, SOUTH OF CULHANE LAKE, AND NORTHEAST OF PIKE LAKE. ALSO CONFIRMED IS A 20% CONTAINMENT, HOWEVER THE DNR STRESSES A PORTION OF THE CONTAINMENT IS DUE TO THE LAKE SUPERIOR SHORE LINE.  RESIDENTS AND VISITORS ARE URGED TO REMAIN OUT OF THE AREA AS THIS IS STILL A SERIOUS SITUATION.  ALL ROAD CLOSURES REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.


(AT 2 .M. ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON, I REMOVED THE MAP FROM THIS POST BECAUSE IT WAS TOTALLY WRONG.  IT WAS A MAP THAT WAS SHOWING WHAT COULD POTENTIALLY HAPPEN, NOT WHAT HAS HAPPENED.  THAT IS NOT WHAT I WAS TOLD WHEN GIVEN THE INFO.  A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE A LOT ON THEIR PLATES SO SOMETIMES THINGS GET DISTRIBUTED THAT SHOULD NOT BE)
