The waterfall picture was taken near Marquette Michigan and the lakeshore and lighthouse were taken from a sunken boat tour on Lake Superior, near Munising.

These are a few pictures of wildlife we've found in the last couple of years. The baby birds are robins. They made a nest on our porch two year's ago. The robin is the state bird. Pictured here are also a blue-spotted salamander, a mink frog, a tree frog, and a monarch.

Mackinac Island

These are photos from Mackinac Island. The island is located on Lake Huron, just east of the Mackinac Bridge. Life on the island is fairly simple. Motorized vehicles are not permitted. People move by walking or bicycle. In the summer people reach the island by ferry or small plane. In the winter people travel across the frozen lake on skis and snowmobiles. These photos are from 2004-2005. Photos from the Grand Hotel, Fort Mackinac, Fort Michilimackinac, and the island. The rock formation is called Arch Rock. Also pictured are an American Toad and wildflowers.
