Random Pictures
Bridge is 11 miles away to the west.  This photo, taken in the dark, has a 13 second exposure time.  Summer 2005 at Sand Bay on Bois Blanc.
You'll have to excuse the bugs on the windscreen. I forgot to wipe it down during my preflight.
Tall goldenrod & Late Goldenrod look almost the same.  I chose late because it did not have a grayish stem.  Located in Alber's meadow.
This coltsfoot is not common in northern Michigan, and not very common in the southern part of the state.  It is classed as a weed in a bunch of states though.

This type has a single yellow flowerhead on each stalk.  The leaves have a horseshoe shape about the side of a colts.

This flowerhead is not entirely open.  The rays usually stick straight out to the side.  There is a colony of them along the north shore road.

There are two varieties on BBI, four in the state.  The other blueberry on BBi is called Velvetleaf or Canada Blueberry.
Low sweet blueberry has serrate bristle tipped leaves.  Canada blueberry has entire leaves.
This small wetland pond lays between Lake Michigan and US-2 in the UP.
Getting some sun.
