Yin and Yang

On my last trip to Marquette, the road that runs around Presque Isle hadn’t been opened for the season yet, so I had to walk about a mile to get out to the area near Black Rocks. I was glad I did, since there were some interesting ice/snow formations that were gone within two days […]

While staying at the Seacoast Resort on a recent trip to the U.P., I took the opportunity to wander across the road to the Lake Superior shoreline there.

Looking for Lunch

Stopped to stretch my legs and point and shoot on my way out of Marquette… I thought it was interesting that with the waves picking up (they were getting bigger while you watched) the seagulls were looking for lunch. I’m guessing the waves kick up more food options? This was the last photo I took […]
