A few photos from the last half of my vacation:
About five miles north of Manistique on route 94, I pulled over when I saw two sandhill cranes (Grus canadensis) in a field. I tried my best but I really miss my nice long telephoto on my nice 35mm SLR film camera. This is the only photo where both cranes had their heads up at the same time:
Here’s where home was during the festival. My little green backpacker tent, which got so badly beaten up by the winds at Bliss, is in the back. (Still haven’t set up and waterproofed the new tent; now I have 50 weeks to do that, I guess.)
The Hiawatha main stage, pretty early in the day I think, even before the open mic started. Both the Saturday and Sunday open mics were completely filled up by the time I went looking for the sign-up list on Friday night.
Finally, on the way out of town on Monday, I had my traditional drive down Lakeshore Drive. This is actually one of the best photos of the big Marquette Harbor Lighthouse that I’ve actually gotten, which in a way is kind of pathetic as I’ve only had almost three decades to do better, but hey.
