In November, people watch the Northern Michigan weather reports ready to worship the first snowflake. By the end of February, taxed by the stress of clearing driveways, scraping windshields and enduring white knuckled commutes, many people are not glorifying winter's stamina. But I do. In fact, I'm enjoying…Continue

In the fall of ones life, it is a time of pause and reflection. The fullness of a mostly used up allowance of time here on this rock, and a lot less looking ahead.
In the case of a life spent in the outdoors, it is like a constant flow of old movies playing out in that ever expanding theater of the mind.

1. The Ferris Wheel: Sure, it's 16 degrees outside. But how often do you see one of these bad boys in the middle of the street? You don't.…Continue
