Log Home in the Woods

The goal of life is living in agreement with nature.

-Zeno,Greek philosopher (335 BC - 264 BC)

Being a fellow log home dweller (part-time), I am always fascinated by other log homes. It just seems like the perfect fit for the beauty of Northern Michigan.

Big Bradford Lake

50% of Big Bradford Lake is state land. This untamed portion of the lake supports a great variety of wildlife.

Lily pads

At the shallow end of Little Bradford Lake in Gaylord, there were all these beautiful lily pads. I was happy to have caught them with their flowers opened.

Michigan Wilderness

In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.

Lake Michigan View from the Upper Peninsula

After crossing the Mackinac bridge to the Upper Peninsula, there are more spectacular views of Lake Michigan Shoreline off US 2. These particular photos were taken near the Hog Island picnic area.

Marshlands of Seney National Wildlife Refuge

Seney National Wildlife Refuge is comprised of numerous wetlands and deciduous and coniferous trees on 95,000 acres in the Upper Peninsula. I posted last year about Seney and I can't stop talking about it. It is my favorite place to photograph, hike and observe wildlife. If you want to experience such vast, unspoiled magnificent wilderness then you will love this place. It is addicting!
(I'll be posting the birds I observed there on my birding blog at . )

Some of the wetlands are picture below. I'll post more photos in the upcoming weeks.
