Nice beaver!

John McCormick over at Michigan Nut Photography posted a nice photo-article exploring the sites and scenes in the Beaver Basin area of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Summer Sunday

And a year. Four quick ones from the back yard.

Also a warm Welcome to the world for my grand niece, Isabella.

Two months early but so far, doing fine.

Ever wondered what it looks like below the surface of the Great Lakes?

NOAA has you covered.

Raw data, images, animations, and poster-sized PDFs are some of the highlights.
