I wanted to share this bit of natural beauty that I captured this summer because some gifts are too good to keep to yourself. I also wanted my friends to know that I am NOT crazy to make the drive from Maryland to the UP a couple of times a year.

Hey Peter,

I also am a Yooper and I now happen to live in Maryland (Germantown/Gaithersberg area), and I was wondering how many hours it took you to get to the UP?

My kinda picture--at my favorite place.

MD Yooper,

I leave from the Frederick area and it takes me 17 to 18 hours. I do the turnpike driving at nigh (if I can) so that the ever-present construction doesn't slow me down as much.

Calumet Waterworks...have alot of good memories of that place...Been there too many times to count!
Oh and seeing all the people making the drive from Maryland...WOW 17 hours!!!!
Now I guess my 10 hour drive from Lansing dosnt seem so bad...I will be hiting the road soon for my visit (before the snow flys)

You think Nancy Nelson like's to take pictures of the UP - You should see all the rocks from the Calumet water works that she has in her garage to paint!!

When I was a teenager growing up in Calumet, we called the Calumet Waterworks "Bucky's" after a vendor who had a small shop there in the summer. It was a great place for kids like me to swim and be with friends. The police never let things get out of hand of course. We had a lot of fun at the Calumet Waterworks.

My daughter attended MTU for the past four years. Of course, every visit, I found myself at Calumet Waterworks Park. She met her future husband at school, graduated, married and moved away. I doubt that I'll be back for many years. In my office desk drawer I have a small bag of agates I found on that very beach. Part of that beach is with me - but more important - part of me will always be on that beach. How I miss it's quiet beauty...
