The Big Lake

In the wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I found adventure, competition, beauty, and most of all relaxation.  Although, it took me a couple of days to shake off the "should-be-doing-something" thoughts and ease into a vacationer's unscripted pace.  I began each day with a jog in the woods and ended each night with a s'more or two.  Some highlights are pictured, but halfway through the trip, my camera battery died, and I chose not to recharge it.  Sometimes you just have to live the moments instead of capturing them.  Very intensely photographed was our dyeing of family shirts in a rainbow colors.  We left them on the rocks overnight to be rinsed by the pouring rain.  The chipmunks were intrigued.
