While on my summer vacation, I headed up to Bliss, Michigan to photograph a couple of polo games that were going on that afternoon. I was amazed by all that goes in to running the tournament— so many horses and so few people!
Tahquamenon Falls State Park, The Upper Peninsula, Michigan.
We took a ride over the Mighty Mac to the see some the falls and go for a short hike. The falls apparently this color because of tannic acid from decaying pine trees further upstream. I personally think it looks like a waterfall of cola. Things are a little different up in the U.P. and not just the waterfalls.
This is an 8'x10’ Dovetailed log cabin that I found on a remote lake in Northern Michigan. It is hidden on a ridge over the lake in the trees, you can only see a hint of it from the lake. While canoeing the lake I slipped through a channel into a smaller lake and glimpsed a roof line in the trees. I thought it was a deer blind, but as I got closer I could see it was something more. I landed and climbed the ridge to check it out, and this is what I found.
THIS IS LEXI AND SHE IS AN ABSOLUTE SWEETHEART. SHE BELONGS TO MY BEST FRIEND SARAH AND CURRENTLY, WHILE WE’RE DOWNSTATE FOR SCHOOL, HER MOTHER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING CARE OF HER AS OUT APARTMENT DOESN’T ALLOW DOGS.
AND CURRENTLY WE BELIEVE THAT HER MOTHER MAY BE ABUSING HER DOG. ON TOP OF THAT, SHE CALLED SARAH TONIGHT TO TELL HER SHE’S GETTING RID OF LEXI. WE NEED TO FIND THIS BABY GIRL A HOME REALLY SUPER FAST BEFORE HER MOTHER CAN FIND SOMEONE TO DROP THE DOG ON. THIS IS SARAH’S DOG. NOT HER MOTHER’S. IT IS LEGALLY LICENSED UNDER SARAH’S NAME.
SO PLEASE, IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW WOULD EVEN BE ABLE TO FOSTER HER FOR A WHILE UNTIL WE FIND SOMETHING MORE PERMANENT, WE’LL PAY FOR FOOD AND EVERYTHING, JUST MESSAGE ME OR cheezuscrustonacracker IMMEDIATELY.
DOG INFO: LEXI IS SPAYED AND UP TO DATE ON SHOTS. SHE IS A TWO YEAR OLD BLACK LAB, MEDIUM BUILD. SHE IS AN ACTIVE DOG WHO NEEDS SOMEONE WHO CAN PLAY WITH HER AT LEAST A FEW TIMES A DAY.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP US OUT BEFORE THIS DOG FALLS INTO AN EVEN WORSE SITUATION.
In Northern Michigan there are a lot of abandoned properties. Looking at them you can’t help but think about the life they had before they were abandoned. The happy moments, children born, what happened? They’re such an interesting monument to a time that’s passed.
this summer has made me realize how thankful i am to live in northern michigan. we may not have the skyscrapers and starbucks on every street corner but we have this. we have fresh water. we have sand. we have clean air. we have trees. we have everything mother nature intended us to have. we have happiness.
