Our tour of the Pasty Cam archives today, starts back in 2005, with Tim Bertsos. He captured the definition of carefree, summer fun with one click of his shutter button, capturing this young man in mid-air. Even without seeing his face, you can just tell he has a big smile, anticipating the thrill of landing with a big splash, triumphant in his perfect dock jumping form. Itís pretty much what being a kid in the Copper Country summer is all about.

Next stop is at Old Victoria in Ontonagon County. Carl Kiilunen (RIP) takes us there, back in 2006, right in front of the Arvola House, which serves as the visitor center for this restored ghost town...one of the first sites ever mined for copper in the New World. This is where the famous "Ontonagon Boulder" was discovered in the Ontonagon River. The Boulder is now resting in the National Museum of Natural Science at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.

We end our photographic tour at Eagle River, with Chris Gariepy, in 2009. Thatís his son, wading in Eagle River, where it flows into Lake Superior on the beach there. Itís often much warmer water than the Big Lake, so it attracts the kids for some good old fashion water play when the weather isnít the warmest.

Weíre staying right here in Eagle River with our video clip today. Jeff Burgess takes us on a quick visit there, with a look at the River and then out at Lake Superior, too, just about a year ago.

I could listen to the sounds of that water forever!

OOPS...there was a technical glitch this morning, so the photo from Carl Kiilunen didn't get uploaded above. Here's the Old Victoria Homestead photo:

2005: Taking the Plunge:

the ONLY way to get into a lake!

When a local kindergarten class was told that the next day they would learn to draw, 18 youngsters showed up with pistols.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 08:58 am:

Good one, Gormfrog. Now I'm waiting for the day when kindergarteners are taught self-defense by learning how to draw pistols.

Great to see one of my old pictures show up! Since
then this kid has graduated from college, been
through the Air Force, and is now out in the
working world. This was always one of my favorite
pictures from the UP, and was taken with a film
camera. Only one chance! Makes me look forward to
our yearly trip to the UP next week.
