America the Beautiful by Chuck Olsen.

America the Beautiful by Chuck Olsen.

Greetings from the North Shore where this weekend will be totally packed with fun things to do and see. More on this later.

Meanwhile, the Northwoods is such an inspiring place, and summer is certainly one of our premier times. Chuck Olsen’s photograph, above, says a lot, but I was also tempted to lead with this photo from Michael Furtman– it is so beautiful.
