In the same clearing off of Fire Tower Road.
I am unsure as to which Island Road. Main drag going out to the Airport, I think. Taken in 2004.

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.
Some artistic techniques applied.  How beautiful to fish on a lake that is totally vacant of other fisherman.  Picture taken Feb 24, 2010.
After the big thaw the ice has become weak and brittle.  It kind of reminds me of an egg shell, it seems strong until you break it.  The open water has invaded quite a way towards the West.  Note that Mackinac has no ice.
Found originally by Bruce McAfee.  It appeared to be peeking out of a hole.  I returned the following day and discovered that it was stuck, so I dug it out.  A very lucky snake.  It had been trapped since the storm of about a week ago in the roots of a blown over maple way back on the rail road grade.  It has eight rattles.
