Vol. XX – #268- From the Lens of Erhardt Peters

A couple of oldies, but goodies! From the lens of Erhardt Peters way up above Lake Leelanau looking West, date unknown, but you can plainly see the foundry in the background across the river. In the aerial photo, you can see the undeveloped land along the river and the golf course. The view below of Fishtown from Pearl St. Snowfall… Read more »

Vol. XX – #170 – The Wind and Leelanau State Park

We got a little wet on the big wall, but the waves were not breaching it. The… Read more »
