You can't do what we do here at Traverse/MyNorth and not love both Northern Michigan and photography.
Sometimes that means we share something and everyone says, “Oh, I’ve seen the sky just like that,” making us the kindred spirits we are.

The serene and the wild. It is all a part of this place we love ... I grew up in the suburbs where, as children, we tore out the door when there was real snow to play in.
