Au Sable River Pictures

Here are the photos from my trip to the Au Sable River area with Leslie last weekend.

Yippee! Such as they are. They look pretty dark on my monitor at work, but then most things do for some reason. I dream of having a monitor and a printer that are worth trying to calibrate.

theyre still fine tho. its the image that counts, every picture does tell a story.

bah calibration. i gave up. mine is set too dark, but i did this in a very dark room like a dumbass. my printer is even worse off but im not happy with the quality of it anyways, i want one of them new ones and this is a way to provoke myself to getting to it. i once threw my couch out so i would have no choice but get a new one:)

Thanks. :)

I need a new printer. My printer is at least eight or nine years old now, and it mostly works -- I have to force-feed it paper, because the rollers are probably shot, but it does everything it was supposed to. Problem is, that isn't very much. Every time I buy ink cartridges I think about how much they cost versus a new printer. (Yes, I'd have to buy ink for a new printer too, so that comparison doesn't really make sense. Humor me. :-) I just have to get enough money together that doesn't need to pay off a bill or make some repair, and then I can get a spiffy new printer that can handle printing photos. And THEN I'll worry about calibrating the monitor to it.

Great shots!

We're still trying to decide if we're brave enough to get the trailer through that tiny little path to the high banks camping area. Being up there for a "fall colors" tour would be terrific....

Thanks!

That was a fun little trail up the high banks but I don't know if I'd want to drive anything bigger than an ATV there, myself. But that's just me -- Leslie does OK with it.

Is that the Dam just outside Mio? We used to spend time up there during summer vacations when I was a kid...before it was "developed." Lovly area.


Why did they put that great statue next to the pedestal instead of on it?

I think Mio is further away. I didn't keep track of the dams, and I know there are something like four of them. We were maybe 20 miles from Oscoda, if that helps.

About the statue: I have no idea. I could've used a boost up. :)

color trip
so... the 37th annual color trip up there on the high banks is coming up the second weekend of october... it's not nearly as difficult to drive into as you just heard... just takes some practice... and it's spectacular! i have decades of killer photos from up there... if you're interested, songdogmi will put you in touch with me... i don't know how to sign up for this, so i don't even know if this will get posted... but if i had an id it would be lesfred :-)

Re: color trip
And I was way too slow to see this and un-screen it. Sorry... for a LJ addict I'm not very good at it.
