Customs Reporting Station

In order to enter Canada or the United States from the Northwest Angle, you need to report your intentions by telephone.  This is by far the nicer of the two stations.  The other one is essentially in the middle of the woods and is infested with biting flies...  I also found out that the "call centers" (It doesn't just call the nearest manned border crossing?  Really?) both governments use antique phone systems.  For example, if you call the Canadian side and get a busy signal, don't hang up - stand there and listen to the busy signal.  Shoot... even my dentist's office has music on hold!

Jerry's - Northwest Angle

Jerry's bills themselves as the "Northern Most Bar and Restaurant In Contiguous United States."   Says so right on the menu.  Food was good and not horribly expensive.  The Diet Coke had less than normal fizz though...

The TV was showing "Jaws" - I suppose appropriate for the fishing clientele...

+Dave Landgren - not bad, but in some places the horseflies and deerflies are horrid.  Luckily not around the resort...

I am a serious hobby photographer, husband, and a pretty good amateur plumber...  Other hobbies include model railroading and archery.

A few words about my "Hand Picked Circles" project:

It is now dead and gone.  Thanks Google.


A Few Words About My "Photographic Style"

In general my style is "Photo Veritas."  I almost always strive for realism and the common experience.  I don't usually include people in my photos, because I expect the viewer to be "the person in the picture."
