You never know what you might see out on the ice, once the lake freezes over. On the day these photos were snapped just recently, Emma Stout was watching a red fox walking along the ice near their home on Portage Lake. She figures it was out on the ice, looking for something to snack on. From the looks of the tracks alongside where it's walking in several of the shots, he's either been this way before, or he's following the trail of another critter that headed that same way. It looks to have a healthy coat of fur and what a beautiful color, too. I'm sure glad Emma was keeping her eyes open and her camera ready to capture this adventure on ice.

The "UP Foxtrot"!

That's awesome!

For anyone interested, next Monday's episode of the American Picker's, will be in Nahma, Delta County/Upper Michigan....They'll be picking the General Store that's owned by my lil' bro, who also owns the Nahma Inn:

And, it'll be interesting. Charley bought the General Store "as is"...filled with the stuff that was in it, when it closed in the '40's...I have toured the store. It's 3 floors, and I saw 2, with my jaw scraping the floor....wait till you see! :D

I was so excited to see the fox pictures today. I have not seen a real fox around here in quite awhile! Great photos ,Emma! Keep up the good work!

A couple of times this summer I was lucky enough to see one of the
young foxes living in a den near my dad's camp at Little Perch Lake.
It was a thrill to watch them saunter across County Rd. 581. A
couple of people were even luckier--they watched the mom playing
with her two little ones in the evening after the local dogs had
retired for the evening. Good work, Emma!

I love Foxes. They are a rare treat.

Donna, that is so interesting about your brother's General Store and the Nahma Inn. The Inn is a beautiful place!

Emma, so glad you are into taking pictures and you're doing a great job.

Donna we set to tape the show, on Directv for the 14th it says
"the Dr is in " I am assuming that is not the right American

By Gloptmike (Gloptmike) on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - 10:16 pm:

Steve, you have the right show. Following is from the program description.
"Later, during a swing through Michigan the Pickers discover a general store that has been closed for 60 years. Its vintage inventory is completely intact and the new owner Charlie is ready to make a deal."

By Steve Haagen (Radsrh) on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - 11:13 pm:

Just looked at the expanded info and it does
say that. Thank you.
