Superior | Siblings #1: Ben Visits Lake Medora and We See Mushrooms.

A couple of weeks ago my brother Ben Somberg came to visit us at Lake Medora.  Ben loves to take pictures, especially of birds.  (He is a great bird photographer).  He and I went on several photography expeditions along Lake Superior.  On the west side, (M26 from Copper Harbor down to Eagle River), we saw basically one bird: a sparrow.  Big disappointment.

But the next day we went along the east side (facing the bay), and we saw an amazing collection of mushrooms.  On one of the turnouts, we were in a kind of Mushroom Museum.  Everywhere we looked there was another one. (Apparently this year has seen an rivaled mushroom crop in the Keweenaw).  So no birds, but fungi forever.

PS  Next one up is Sandy.
