Weekend Getaways-Autumn at Starved Rock https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/weekend-getaways-autumn-at-starved-rock Located 90 minutes southwest of Chicago is one of Illinois’ most popular state parks, Starved Rock. Nestled along the banks of the Illinois River, hundreds of thousands of visitors travel from around the country to explore the canyons, hike 13 miles of marked trails, and in the fall, watch as the colors light up the sandstone canyon walls. With 18 canyons and more than 3,200 acres to explore, it may take more than just one trip to experience everything the park has to offer. A convenient stone lodge, built in the 1930s, offers 72 luxury hotel rooms, 22 cabin rooms as well as a whirlpool and sauna. If the lodge is booked, various hotels are located in nearby Utica, Peru and Oglesby. As a year round park, Starved Rock offers a unique visit during any season. Summer brings warm temperatures and families with children on break filling up the park's campground. Autumn brings its own rewards with trails carpeted in fallen leaves. Spring rains create magnificent waterfalls and in winter those same waterfalls become frozen walls of ice where the experienced can practice their ice climbing skills. So take a free weekend and head a few hours west of St. Joseph, you won't be disappointed.

The Art of Food https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/food-assignments I think one of the most undervalued sections in many papers today is the Food page. I can't tell you how many times I have subjects compliment me on our weekly section and I usually look forward to shooting it each week. Although I don't fancy myself a "foodie" or anything close to an expert, I do think that shooting hundreds of these pages over the years has given me an appreciation for the creativity and hard work chefs and cooks put in. So take a look at just a few of the food assignments I've shot over the last summer.

Prep Football Season Is Here https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/prep-football-season-is-here School has not even begun and I've already covered four high school football games. The summer goes way too fast. Returning eight-man state champs Lawrence looks like it will have another strong year and it was nice to see Benton Harbor win a game Friday night at home. I think it was the first in years. So I'll keep my fingers crossed that we have dry Friday nights unlike last year where it seemed to rain every game.     Don Campbell / HP staff See more photos:heraldpalladium.mycapture.com

Weekend Getaways-Hidden Corners of Sleeping Bear https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/weekend-getaways-hidden-corners-of-sleeping-bear Every year over a million visitors make their way up M22 in northern Michigan, passing through the town of Empire to reach Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, a year round destination for campers, hikers, cyclists and those seeking a weekend getaway.

Summer is a popular season as visitors struggle up the 110-foot high Dune Climb or take the leisurely drive along the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. But for those able to spend a little extra time hidden corners wait to be explored. 

Four miles north of Glen Arbor and within the northern portion of Sleeping Bear Dunes is the Port Oneida Rural Historic District. Twenty turn of the century farms, barns, cemeteries and schools, scattered along back roads and paths, are all on display allowing visitors a chance to experience what life was like too live without many of the modern day conveniences we take for granted.

Just south of the Port Oneida district and sitting along the shores of Sleeping Bear Bay is the Glen Haven Historic Village. The logging village has been restored to what it looked like in the 1920’s and features a general store, cannery boathouse, and blacksmith shop. 

After exploring Glen Haven head west to the Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station Maritime Museum. Exhibits explain the history of U.S. LIfe-Saving Service and the U.S. Coast Guard along the Great Lakes.

Winding its way through the lakeshore is the park’s newest addition, the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail. 

The paved, 16-mile non-motorized trail connects Empire with Port Oneida allowing walkers and cyclists access to many of the park attractions along the way. Pending construction includes an additional 11 miles to be added to the trail.

So the next time you have a free weekend, make the drive up to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, spend the night in a tent, a hotel, or a B&B, and enjoy the rich history of this amazing area. A volunteer works at a forge as she demonstrates blacksmithing skills during a summer afternoon at the restored blacksmith shop in the Glen Haven Historic Village. Located seven miles north of Empire, the village, which was originally called Sleeping Bearville, operated between 1865 and 1931 as a stop for steamships traveling between Chicago and Buffalo. The sun sets as a solitary sailboat cruises along Lake Michigan, off the shores of the Sleeping Bear Dune. In the 1800s shipping was a key part of travel on the Great Lakes. The Manitou Islands, located offshore, provided a stop for commercial ships to refuel which led to the early settlement of the islands as well as the mainland. Storm clouds move in as a chicken coop is reflected in the leaded glass windows of a barn at the Dechow Farm, one of the farms located in the 3000 acre Port Oneida Rural Historic District in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The area was farmed for over 100 years with many of the farms being passed down from generation to generation. Don Campbell /HP staff
A lone hiker explores the vast dunes 450 feet above Lake Michigan as the sun sets on a summer evening at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The bluff, located along the Pierce Stocking Drive, has been disappearing at a rate of about 1 foot per year as waves and wind slowly erode the sand.

Fun and Faces of the Fair https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/fun-and-faces-of-the-fair Summer is rapidly winding down and I just got finished the other week with the 2015 Berrien County Youth Fair.

Sometimes you just have to have a little extra patience and look a little closer to make really solid images. Don Campbell / HP staff See more photos:heraldpalladium.mycapture.com

Weekend Getaways-In The Garden https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/weekend-getaways Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids opened its newest addition to the public this past week with the unveiling of the Richard & Helen DeVos Japanese Garden. The three-year project by garden designer Hoichi Kurisu and Kurisu International combines traditional Japanese garden features with contemporary sculptures.

Visitors wind their way around the Lena Meijer Pond past waterfalls, across bridges and through gardens as they explore eight acres of contemplation and reflection. An authentic Japanese teahouse, built in Japan and then dismantled and rebuilt in the gardens, offers traditional tea ceremonies by appointment. For more information or to plan a visit to the gardens, visit www.meijergardens.org.

24 Hours of LeMons https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/4/24-hours-of-lemons There are no multi-million dollar sponsors, no race teams with dozens of pit crew workers. Drivers sleep not in luxurious motorhomes but often in tents pitched on muddy ground. Each year Gingerman Raceway in South Haven hosts The Cure for Gingervitis auto race, part of the 24 Hours of LeMons series held across the country. Dozens of drivers compete in the endurance race where the primary restriction is that the cars must be valued at $500 or less. While rules govern the technical side of the cars, nothing stops the teams' imagination and creativity when it comes to decorating. Got to love these guys.

Sports: A Look Back https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/4/sports-a-look-back Spring sports have already begun but I thought I would take a minute to post just a few sports pics from this past winter. It was a long season shooting dozens of bball games and wrestling matches and every year we usually have at least one basketball team make a title run. This year was no different as the Benton Harbor girls' bball team made it to the semifinals in East Lansing. So, until next year.

Busy weeks ahead. https://doncampbellphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/busy-weeks-ahead I've been swamped at work the last few weeks and have finally had a chance to post just a few images from past assignments. With the recent heavy snow and wind chills around -30 it's nice to have an assignment inside once in awhile and the students at Stewart Elementary School in Stevensville and their Historical Wax Museum always make for fun pics.
