Welcome to the Winterhaven events and pictures webpage.

Since we are far off the beaten path in northern Michigan, for our friends and relatives who can't be with us on a regular basis, we will try to post pictures of Winterhaven and our activities. That way, we can share it with all of you even if you can't be here in person.


Before we get to the Winterhaven Pictures, here are a few links to related pages:

Winter In The Copper Country

Winter is usually a spectacular season in the Copper Country. Several feet on the ground is pretty normal. Snow shoes and skiis (cross country, of course) get a lot of use.

The Pond

The pond is, perhaps, the most enjoyable aspect of life here at Winterhaven. We spend many evenings watching ducks and other wildlife congregate around and on the pond.

We don't often get all the family here, but from time to time we get together with bits and pieces of it. We also have occasional visits from friends. Here are a few pictures.

Isle Royale Trip

In September I joined Don Savera on a trip to Isle Royale. He had been there a number of times but it was my first time. It was a trip, alright.
