I was invited to stay at a friend’s camp near the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. I drove there on a day that began bright and promising, but by L’Anse the sky had clouded over and a light drizzle was falling. By the time I reached the camp the rain was a steady downpour. It didn’t stop for two days.
Some people learn to love nature through pursuits such as camping or canoeing; others, though hiking or mountain biking. For me, life outdoors has always revolved around dogs.
