Weekends are always welcomed, as a week of investing myself in caring for Veterans who are emotionally hurt takes a toll that only mindful creativity can hit the delete key on. Benny and I visited my favorite winter riverscape today-The middle branch of the Ontonagon, above Bond Falls. Temps in the mid 20's made it possible to work with the camera for three hours. Benny got relegated back to the Toyota within the first 45 minutes, as the river is a major attractor for snowmobilers to walk to the falls, and Schnauzers are not known for a quiet voice in the presence of strangers, at least not Mr. B. Ice formations change daily, dependent upon snowfall and temperature. Always a new palette to work with. One of Michigan's celebrated blue ribbon trout streams of international acclaim, but can be challenging to wade in some stretches.
