Sunset Moonrise on the UP

It was in 2003, the last time I was able to take a trip out of state for any length of time, that I saw a memorable sunset on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan heading back from a stay on the Keweenaw.  In the west the sky burned like fire in reds, gold and blue.  To the east the harvest moon rose in a cobalt sky with clouds the color of cotton candy.  No where else have I seen such intensity of color at sunset and moonrise.


It was on this same road that a bald eagle descended a few feet in front of our car to swoop seconds later to the side of the road … on enormous wings and as graceful as though it had just dipped it’s talons into a lake.


So much beauty to behold in our very short lives.  Take the time you need to enjoy every moment.

Will we through our mining practices continue to degrade our most precious resource … water?

The following photos were taken in parts of northern Minnesota, some in the UP of Michigan, Colorado Rockies, Alberta, Canada, and on a beach of the Pacific ocean off the Olympic National Forest … all areas where protection of our environment has taken a back seat to lumbering, mining for ore, frack sand, and/or fracking and drilling for oil and gas.  These lands are threatened through practices that pollute and usually drain (mine) our aquifers of good drinking water.
