Photos of Bois Blanc (Bob-Lo) Island

Site-Map What's New
Bois Blanc Island is commonly known as Bob-lo by the island's residents and is the largest of the three islands in the Mackinac Straits. The island is heavily forested and marshy in many spots. To really explore the island, a 4-wheeler RV is needed. A few roads criss-cross the island, but real access to many places is via narrow trails where only an RV can go. The island is a nature paradise.

Visitor and vehicle access to the island is available via ferry from Cheboygan, MI. Contact Plaunt Transportation for ferry schedules.

photo of an old steam engine on Bois Blanc Island
Steam Engine #1427
Hidden away from view, a serious explorer of Bois Blanc will find this old steam engine. The island has a long history of logging. Lumber was moved by a steam-powered train and an old mill was powered by a steam engine. I've yet to determine which application this engine powered.

Not much of the old and worn out ever leaves a relatively isolated island like Bois Blanc. That gives me the pleasure of photographing old junk cars and trucks like this one. They're always way out of sight, so never become a bother.

A Novel: 'The March of Angels' for Kindle
A Novel: The March of Angels

Wade Garrett is a county sheriff investigating a brutal murder near Indian River, Michigan. His murder investigation took him to the decayed Detroit neighborhoods where his father had been killed during a street robbery when Wade was only eight years old. He had grown up afterward without a single memory of his father or his family life before that loss. Through fate or coincidence, the Indian River murder investigation took him back to those same Detroit streets where his father was killed. And there, childhood memories came hauntingly back, one by one, as he investigated the murder. Details about his forgotten childhood, his father’s life, and the life they’d had, all things that had been lost to him for a lifetime began to come back to him. And there, the murder investigation brought suspicion upon himself, taking his life to the edge of disaster.
The March of Angels weaves a story that explores fate and coincidence and the rippling effect of people and events throughout time and place.
