Autumn At Oman’s Creek

Known as Floodwood Creek by the Native Americans, Oman's Creek meanders through the woods and fields behind our cottage near Little Girl's Point in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan before emptying into Lake Superior where it becomes a launch site for fishing boats. It's there in the center, you just can't see the water. Named after one the pioneer families that settled at Little Girl’s Point and built a homestead that still stands at its mouth, Oman's Creek was called Little Girl's River as early as 1860.…

Autumn Abandonment

Another forgotten cabin located down the road from our cottage near Little Girl’s Point on Lake Superior in the far western end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It’s right across the road from this old cottage. I’ve taken many photos of this place as well, but this time I shot it from an all-new angle that wasn’t possible until they tore down the old cabin and garage next door to this building a couple years ago. A cool way to view mine or anyone else's photostream is on fluidr.

Autumn At Little Girl’s Point

The coming of the fall season to Little Girl’s Point on Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan also brings along the possibility of storms, such as a recent event that left a collection of fresh driftwood on the beach. A cool way to view mine or anyone else's photostream is on fluidr.

The Kabin In The Fall

This abandoned cabin is located down the road from our cottage near Little Girl’s Point on Lake Superior in the far western end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I’ve taken many photos of this place, but now I’m hearing rumors that the owners plan to tear it down to save money on their property taxes. That would be a shame since the old log house next door was torn down this past summer. A cool way to view mine or anyone else's photostream is on fluidr.

Autumn On The Montreal River

It is 47.8 miles long and drains approximately 270 square miles in a forested region. For most of its length, the river's course defines a portion of the Wisconsin–Michigan border. The Ojibwe name for the river is Gaa-waasijiwaang, meaning "where there is whitewater". The Montreal River issues from Pine Lake in the town of Oma in eastern Iron County in northern Wisconsin.…

Big Carp River In The Fall

The Carp River is a 10.3-mile-long river in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that is formed by the outflow of the Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. The 92-square-mile park was established in 1945 to protect the last extensive tract of uncut hardwood forest remaining in the Midwest, and later designated as a Wilderness Area. The river flows generally west and southwest and empties into Lake Superior on the boundary between Ontonagon and Gogebic County. The river is also know…

Autumn At The Lake Of The Clouds

The Lake of the Clouds is located in Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan within the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.

The lake is situated in the Big Carp River Valley between two ridges in the Porcupine Mountains, so named by the native Ojibwa people because their silhouette had the shape of a porcupine. Su…

Autumn At Bonanza Falls

Bonanza Falls (AKA Greenwood Falls) is a wide, low falls on the Big Iron River in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The falls is at most 10 feet high, but in the spring it is 100 feet wide. In summer it's broken up into a number of segments. The bedrock here is tilted back against the flow of the river, creating many obstacles for the water to overcome. Bonanza Falls is located about a mile south of Silver City along Route 64. A short gravel road on the west side of the highway leads to the river with an inf…
