Actually, I think it's sold, because Hayley said it wasn't parked where we saw it. This is a different shot than my Moody Monday: Shiny entry. That one had a landscape orientation, and a color-pop filter used on it.
I practically grew up climbing rocks like this along the Lake Superior shoreline (in various areas of the U.P.). I like the fact that we live close enough to some rocky areas that Hayley can do it too. These particular rocks are below the Marquette Lighthouse -- on the side of McCartys Cove where we're not supposed to be. (OOPS!)
A couple of weeks ago, I received a reminder notice from my optometrist's office telling me it was time for a checkup. Since her office is now in a location that's difficult for me to get to, I decided to switch to Hayley's optometrist, whose office is just 3 blocks from where we live.
The day before my appointment, I received a reminder call. Lo and behold, it was a friend I've known since high school who called. She used to work at both of the last two optometrists' places I've gone to, and it was great to know she was at the new one now too.
I brought along my camera, thinking it'd be fun to take some photos during my appointment. I got so busy, though, gabbing with my friend that I didn't remember to take out my camera until after my eyes were dilated. So this is the only shot I got. (It's difficult to focus the camera when you can't even focus your eyes.) But I would have loved to have taken some great shots like Ali B. did during her visit to the eye doctor!
Yet another 8-18 Media story Hayley worked on (with one other member). They interviewed graduating high school students, asking what their advice would be to incoming freshmen. Hayley did the recording on this one. Voice of Experience II (direct link to mp3)
I received an email today from Betsy, a fellow Yooper. It's great hearing from others who truly appreciate Michigan's Upper Peninsula. She's lucky, though, to live in DA WOODS. I'm so jealous. So if you'd like to witness a REAL Yooper experience, check out one of her sites (not a lot of content, but what IS there shows much of what the U.P. is all about): Random Acts of Thinking Eye See 360 (Flickr) Pine Stump Junction
I'm not exactly sure why the bridge is here. I've never personally seen any water running beneath it. The only thing I can think of is that there's a dip in the trail at this point. It's maybe a mile or so hike to the cabin from the parking area. So by the time anyone renting the cabin reaches this point, hauling whatever they deem as necessities, they're probably pretty worn out...and might stumble. Of course, that's assuming they're not already stumbling from being drunk.
