northern Michigan in the winter

Here's a few pics from the snowy north..got a new phone and took a few pics the other day.. Will take more if I ever get on a hike..cold and snowy and windy up here!

Just a day prior there was ice for as far as you could see...the storm produced some high winds here.. 35-40mph sustained and gusts in the 50-60 range..I couldn't believe the ice was "gone". Its amazing..it was plenty thick..now the lake effect snows are back!

The deer are doing well..I've seen a BUNCH.. I thought this was interesting..


The deer herd up and spend their time in the lowlands...out of the wind..swamps are a little warmer...more winter cover and food..these ones are on a river (same river as the above pic) on thin ice trying to get water...I saw numerous deer on the river..

I wonder how many fall in and die...heck of a way to go..but the deer look good and healthy from what I've seen..amazing considering there's been a snowpack since October here...now the pack has been rained on and is really packed...and more falling now!

Will update if I find more photo ops! The lake is awesome with giant I've caves and such..but dangerous conditions now that the ice pack has moved..

Re: northern Michigan in the winter

Thanx guys! I'm blown away at the fact that a phone has completely removed a point n shoot pocket camera from my life..and it really does take nice pictures for what it is..


The bottom has fallen out of the thermometer up here...and the winds are brutal... I wanna get back out bad..weather looks worse though...

Would you believe the next day the ice was back on the big lake??? Its mind blowing to me..ice one day...open water the next..back to ice the next....mother nature is fascinating and amazingly powerful..

I'm so tempted to sneak around the swamps taking pics of deer...but I know stressing and pressuring them can kill them..if I'm here this spring I will be shed hunting though! Sadly this place is like the "old PA" and deer numbers are high and buck numbers are low..I've seen hundreds of deer in 2 years up here..I can count bucks on my hands..


The fall colors last year were something Ive dreamed of seeing...this year was spotty due to weather..still amazing but last year was something else..
