I made this website as a means to share the work I've done over the years with my writing and photography which has tried to reflect the beauty and uniqueness that is northern Michigan. I've tried to instill that into this website.
Like northern Michigan, I wanted this website to be a haven from the chaos of the rest of the world. That means the cyber world as well. It's one of the reasons visitors aren't deluged with pop-up ads as they come into our pages. There is no advertising on this site. (I do acknowledge that I promote my own work on here, but that is all you'll find. I have to keep the site running somehow.)
The idea is to come in and enjoy the pictures, the articles, maybe stir up some good memories of Michigan and relax. If I mention a business in my articles or commentary it was because I liked them, not because they paid to be there!
So look at this website as your personal oasis of calm, a cyber vacation up north with some history and some great views. Or even a guidebook to your own adventures in Northern Michigan. However you view it, I'll try to keep the chaos to a minimum.
