Skunk Creek in the Rifle River Recreation Area. The weather was kinda rainy and the color was not that good yet, but I still look for something to photograph, I think of going out and taking picks kinda like hunting or fishing, sometimes I do well and sometimes I get skunked, I got a little bit of both on Friday. besides any day in northern Michigan is a better than a day anywhere else.
I went for a drive up north today. I went up near Grayling down thru Roscommon and then over to Rose City and after that Omer, it was a little early for fall color and the weather was not that good but that aint gonna stop me from going out and getting some pics. this is a pic from the Rifle River Recreation Area. the trees are starting to change. maybe next weekend the will peak.
I remember visiting Deer Acres as a kid in the 70’s with my family. it was a fun day trip from Saginaw to feed the deer and drive the old model T style cars around the track with the guide rail. Time has change and Deer Acres is no longer what it used to be, I was told someone has recently purchased it and is in the process of renovating it but other than that it sits as a monument to my childhood memories.
Black River Falls near Ishpeming, the boulders at the bottom of the falls are huge, I would say they are about 3 feet in diameter, I climbed out onto them and set up my tripod to get this pic a few years ago.
I went to the Upper and Lower T-falls a few years ago hoping the colors would be out but I was a little early so I was driving around in the middle of the U.P. and I found this road and got a pic. I don’t know if I can even find this road again, but at least I found it once to get this photo.Sometimes the destination is not what you wanted so you have to go out and search for your destination.
