Spring break up in the U.P.!!

I am getting closer to finishing my winter photos for you
and looking at Spring!

Winter "breakup" in the Upper Peninsula is an exciting time.

Rivers and lakes melt, causing rushing waters down our many waterfalls...

Wild birds begin migrating up from the south...
and the sun shines and gives us that FABULOUS fresh air.

One of the first signs of Spring that I look forward to every year
is spying the first goose back from the south....










I love the big ice chunks that float down the rivers when they break up:





Geese pair at the river:





























Our lake with fog and ice!:






And again in black and white!:

**************************************************************
I hope Spring (and now officially summer after the Memorial weekend?!)
is treating you well...

I am happy that my photos are "catching up" to Spring!

Hi Joan! Very nice photos! Still looking cold there, but very nice! We are always happy to host geese from the north each year.
