Happy Columbus Day!

I'm trying now to remember if Columbus discovered America this time of year or if this is just when we celebrate the discovery. Guess I should have paid more attention in history class, so I could figure out if he stepped off his vessel to a kaleidoscope of foliage, as in the first shot by Sandeep Fernandes. A colorful Keweenaw discovery in itself, this country road looks like a great place to unwind with your favorite canine after a stressful day. Take a deep breath, you can almost smell the leaves!

The second photo from Pasty Central's webmeister Charlie Hopper is the first frame of a 45 second video starring their new pup Buddy. Here's the Real Player version, or you can view it with Windows Media Player.

Rise & Shine!! It's going to be another beautiful day in the C.C. Get out and enjoy, because it doesn't sound too good for later on this week!

By Cindy, St. Clair Shores, MI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:23 am:

Okay, now stop! This is torture having to get ready for work when my camera is sitting on my desk in front of me begging to go for a very long drive to capture some of that spectacular color. I'm so depressed! Seriously, keep these pics coming so I can live vicariously through all that are able to enjoy it in person.

By smf in troll land on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:43 am:

Good morning everyone. Beautiful pictures!

By Tim, SW Michigan on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:49 am:

What a neat perspective on the first picture. Fall has got to be my favorite season. Happy Columbus day to all.

By Mary, Ohio on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:50 am:

Great pictures! We have quite a bit of color around here (northwestern Ohio) as well. It was a glorious weekend to enjoy them. The colors just glow against the clear blue skies. Enjoy them while we can.

By Frances Sisk Georgia on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:50 am:

Good Morning form South Georgia,
The country lane looks so enviting. I would like to take off a few days and visit your beautiful state.

By Barb, GR MI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 07:02 am:

Good Morning, Thank you for the pictures that give me a view of the UP I can only dream of for a few years. Off to work. Have a great day, everyone.

By ywb/yooperwannabe/richmond on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 07:07 am:

Many Blessings to John and Nora.

Good morning from Mishawaka, IN. Another great fall day on tap for Mishawaka. To bad I have to go to work.

good morning all. beautiful, beautiful pics. Need more.

By Troll in Eagle Harbor on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:09 am:

Mornin' from the harbor....the water's flat today.Looks like a great time to go wash some lures.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:16 am:

Back to work from a glorious, Keweenaw weekend! Went up Thursday and thought the colors were no where near peak, but as the four-day weekend progressed, they were peak in many spots. Best moments: late afternoon lunch at Lac LaBelle, driving to and around the Porkies, Silver River Falls and stopping at the fishing site on the Silver River at Townline and Skanee Roads, and Prickett Lake. Missed a great photo op at Lac LaBelle 'cuz I figured I could wait until our meal was done. But then the reflections on the water were gone! The fishing site colors were amazing, reflecting on the river. The lake surface looked like land because of the vivid fall colors reflecting on it. I'll have pictures in my gallery in a day or two, if all goes well.
Power House Falls was beautiful at dusk, too. Have a great day!

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:17 am:

Oh, yes! And the pounding waves on our shore in Aura at night! All that was missing was moonlight!

By Chevysac, MQT native - now in Bev Hills on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:26 am:

Just back from a beautiful long weekend in the UP. The Lord blessed us with fantastic weather to journey back home and lay to rest our Molly. She was also a Yooper (a beagle from Tasson's in Ishpeming) and we felt it only fitting to bring her back home and bury her along side her sister Ellee. Both dogs loved the UP as much as we do. We are thankful for all her loving years and blessed to have shared such wonderful times together. Coming back to our house in the big city never felt lonelier than it did yesterday.

By db on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:32 am:

wow wow

By Thad on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:44 am:


Molly and Ellee are waiting here:
Rainbow Bridge

By Dave, Laurium on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 09:13 am:

I was traveling from 'troll' land yesterday and the colors across the UP were fantastic. I must be fair though, the colors in the northern areas of the LP were also very nice. I managed to catch the the light reflecting off a pond through the trees outside of L'anse and decided to stop, this is a sample of the pictures I was rewarded to....enjoy!!

By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 09:31 am:

Dave... That is simply awesome. All these Fall pix are. Ours in GA have barely even started to change!

By A lifetime Yooper on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 09:41 am:

Such beautiful pictures today, as usual. I can almost hear the leaves skittering across the road when a car passes by. in the first picture. Dave from Laurium your photo is breath taking. Praise to the Lord for this beautiful land we live in!

By SUZANNE/ WISCONSIN on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:05 am:

Be sure to catch the beautiful fall wedding picture on John Dee's Site.

By Liz, Idaho on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:21 am:

I posted an answer on Sunday's picture. Mystery solved per email from my Mom.

By Katie on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:26 am:

I owe pasty.net many, many thanks. I have been re-united with an old, dear friend I haven't seen for 25 years, who I had, sadly, lost touch with because I moved overseas.I have been looking for he and his family for years...we'd both moved out of the U.P. One of his photos was shown here the other day....when I saw his name I almost had a heart attack! I asked Toivo if he would please forward my email to him, but I also found my friend's email address in his photo gallery. Anyway, we are emailing each other, are completely delighted to be in contact again and we owe it all to pasty.net. Our love of the U.P. is what binds us together. Thank you one and all at Pasty.net., and special thanks for showing pictures of the autumn colors. They're breath taking!

By Frank,,,,,,Milw........ on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:36 am:

Just back from the C.C. Color great, weather the same. Cliff drive and '41' gorgeous... Rock picking at the C. water-works peaceful. Lunch at the "Harbor Haus," very good. Nice room at the "Arcadian Motel". Still miss the "crusty bread"!!!

By Charlie at Pasty Central on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:50 am:

I would be interested to hear which version is preferred for the video clips we are starting to make available (Real Player or Windows Media)... not sure how the Mac people play streaming video (Quicktime?)

It is another extremely calm day here in the Copper Country, which reminded me of a picture I had received from Dave Dalquist - the North Entrance Light:


By Kate, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:53 am:

I vote for Real Player because I'm a mac girl.

By keweenawgal on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:56 am:

Frank,,,Milw.... You can still get the "crusty bread" at Louie's Super 2 in Calumet! They have the recipe and are making crusty bread, hot dog and hamburger buns and whatever else!

By Dr. Nat in Nevada on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 11:27 am:

Good morning everyone!
I'm back in my office in Vegas today after a fantastic (but short) trip to the Keweenaw. I was able to sit by the lake and listen to the waves washing ashore, we drove around and enjoyed the beautiful colors, and I even enjoyed one cloudy, rainy day.
I'm already looking forward to my next trip up north, though I don't know when it will be.

By Old ME Church boy on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 11:28 am:

Liz in pocamodillo:

Thanks for getting the id of the mystery woman. I didn't know who it was but I *was* pretty sure it wasn't you. (Snerk)

By Jeff@ Illinois on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 11:28 am:

Was in the UP this weekend. Drove up highway 55 through Wisconsin. No wife, no kids. Just me, unbeliveable color and the Wolf River next to me. Listening to the Badgers whip up on Ohio State made it even better. Got to Iron River in time to have pizza at the Riverside Inn. Best place to get a pizza in Iron River. Any other place you order a pizza, they go over to the freezer to get one out. The Riverside has been there since 1946. I think the woman who waited on me was there when the doors first open.

By Frank,,,,,,Milw....... on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 11:54 am:

KEWEENAWGAL...... Thank you, I will tuck that away for the future.

By Frank,,,,,Milw....... on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:02 pm:

Charlie, my vote is "windows media".

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:04 pm:

Good morning from San Jose, where it's in the 80's again this week! Waiting for fall to arrive...

The windows media worked for me here (on my computer at work).

By maijaMI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:04 pm:

windows media player

By Chris, Illinois on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:15 pm:

I vote for Windows Media Player (work pc.) We are not allowed to have Real anything on our work pcs.


By danbury on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:17 pm:

Heavy sigh ... nuff said, or I'll get depressed. No foliage here compared to the UP (by the pics) or New England (own experience) versions.
Who knows what would have happened if Columbus had seen this beauty - unfortunately (or luckily), he was in the wrong place.

By Skylar in Wi on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:23 pm:

Does anybody know the phone number to the Houghton court house? I want to purchase a plat book for Houghton county. Thanks. Later, Skylar.

By Keweenawgal on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:26 pm:

Skylar - 906-482-1150 is the county's clerks office for Houghton County! With purchasing a plat book for Houghton County, you also receive it for Keweenaw County too! TWO FOR ONE!

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:31 pm:

What's a plat book?

By Candy, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:34 pm:

Houghton County Clerk's Office
(906) 482-1150

But they're likely not there today (it's a holiday...)

By darrell/st.johns mi on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:52 pm:

Plat book is a map of property and who owns them, so if you own a house in calumet it will show the property and list your name as the owner.

By Skylar in Wi on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:52 pm:

Thanks Keweenawgal!

Audrey, a plat book is a book that shows who owns land, where it is and how many acres they own. Later, Skylar.

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:56 pm:

Oh, I see now. Thanks, Skylar!!

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:57 pm:

And thanks, too, darrell/st.johns mi!

By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:57 pm:

I like Windows Media Player... Not to mention everyone has it if they use Windows... FREE! Real Player has to be bought, unless you use the free-bee, which isn't that good, in my humble opinion.

By Mel, Kansas on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 01:03 pm:

Bit of sad news for the day - Christopher Reeve passed away yesterday. Link to the CNN story:


He was a hero to so many of us. Hopefully his work will continue to inspire research.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 01:13 pm:

Great pictures! Super!

By Mike, MI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 01:24 pm:

I like Windows Media Player also.

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 01:37 pm:

My first real crush, Christopher Reeve as Richard Collier on Somewhere in Time....

Next to Sir Lawrence Olivier & Charelton Heston I can't think of a more handsome man.

By sblazek,Oconomowoc,WI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 01:59 pm:

I go for the mac version of anything.

Thanks for all your gorgeous pix.

By FRNash/PHX, AZ on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 02:08 pm:

... for the video clips ... (Real Player or Windows Media)... (Quicktime?)
Windows Media or Quicktime (or both) please.
(Use of Real Player should be seriously discouraged (c.f. Chris, Illinois' post above)!

By Yooper Willie on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 02:22 pm:

Audrey, San Jose

A plat book is a detailed property map, in this case of the two combined counties of Houghton and Keweenaw. It shows the listed official owner at the time of publication.

The numbered section grids are 640 square acres each - usually ownership of anything under five acres is not noted; for that go to the courthouse.

It's possible to own five acres up here without being a California multi-millionaire, it's kind of the charm - it's called SPACE.

By Liz, Idaho on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 03:38 pm:

Old ME: Says thanks to my Mom when you see her out wandering...she has that amazing brain. And, (snerk)
I may be the oldest but my sibs all have white locks and I don't. Yes they snoop for coloring and dyes and have not found it yet! I'll be stumping around the Keweenaw for a very short while 27th-31st.
Dave A: I'm gonna print the above off. And ditto to Dave D.

By Big B, Minneapolis on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 04:07 pm:

I vote for Media Player, 'cause I'm a Bill Boy.

By SDC, Ferndale, MI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 04:11 pm:

Windows Media Player works for me....nice dog, I bet he's glad he found a good home.

By shelly on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 04:12 pm:

I really enjoyed the little movie of Buddy. Looks like he has the life!! Windows Media player. :)

By ME on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 04:40 pm:

Chevysac, I can feel your sadness, I have been there for the dogs that I have had also. Molly will be very happy that you returned to bury her by her sister Ellee! You did the most generous thing that you could after all the companionship and happiness that she brought to you and all she did in return was want your love back. She will ever eternally grateful to you and your family.

By Paul , Webberville Troll on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:05 pm:

I see in the weekend paper that the government has closed down the E.L.F. program in the UP.That was the program that allowed contact with the atomic submarines I believe. I seem to remember a big hulabaloo when it was first planned 20 or some years ago. Did you get your lures washed Troll from Eagle Harbor?

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:10 pm:

Yooper Willie/
Here in CA. you need to be a multi- millionaire just to own a postage stamp size lot. Really sad!
Back in Mich. I had a brand new home on one acre for next to nothing compared to out here.

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:22 pm:

Yeah, the price of real estate out here is pretty insane (although, Kevin, I'm assuming it's still more affordable in the central valley then the bay area). I bought my home back in 1987, and feel very fortunate to be able to own a home in this area and not go broke, and I'm certainly far, far away from millionaire status.

By Curios on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:23 pm:

Whats a snerk?

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:35 pm:

It's cheaper here in the central valley then the bay area, but still out of sight and getting worse. Back 4 years ago I was having a home built here in Lodi, put a cap Of $200,000 on it. Which was sticker shock for what I was getting. The house was not completed yet, the bank did the appraisel for the loan, and they appraised it at $230,000. So before it was completed or I had moved in I was up $30,000. That house is now worth + $500,000.

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:37 pm:

Am I bragging? No! Just in aw!

By Ken Austin, WI. on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 05:58 pm:


I have both Windows media and Realtime aand both work very well. Realtime allows you to go full screen with the video, albeit the picture gets pretty blury.

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:02 pm:

Kevin... yes, you are definately catching up!

By L-O-V-E Pastycam! on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:02 pm:

Thanks for all the beautiful pics. WOW!!!

We keep saying 'Columbus discovered America' but the Native Americans didn't know it was UNdiscovered!! Heehee!

By Sofia L, Norway on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 06:06 pm:

I would like to add a message to the discussion of the picture of the Apostolic Church of Pine Street. The picture was posted a couple of years ago, and led to a discussion about the OALC.
First of all, BYRON JOLMA, if you ever read this, please contact "Spiderwoman." Second, thanx a LOT to the one who called himself/herself "Unworthy" - since you've understood the teachings right.
I'm myself a member of the OALC of Norway, but i was brought up inside the church in Sweden, and would like to come in touch with other Christian brothers and sisters in the States.
To all - Be in God's Peace, and welcome to Scandinavia, and the Lapland. May God give us all strength to carry on, and not listen to all those evil powers of the world. let us all pray that we will remain humble and obey to the right doctrines. To all of you whom left the narrow road, may God have mercy upon you..

I remember a Project Sanguine from the late 60's. Supposed to turn the UP into a huge antenna for the Navy as I recall.

By Patt- Mid-Michigan on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 07:36 pm:

Great photos today! Charlie I too vote to keep both options but prefer Windows Media Player. Also so glad to see Buddy as though he does not replace the one you lost, he can fill that painful, empty place the other dog left.

By Ron, Michigan on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 07:40 pm:

I remember when the construction on the ELF project started. Used to hunt with some friends in Hardwood at the time. The Feds came right through a beautifully wooded 40 acres, right smack through the middle of it, with power lines for this project. Was one of those deals where my friend was told, "We're coming through with it, like it or not. Here's what we'll pay you, take it or leave it." What a waste that was of a beautiful piece of land.

By yahoo in flatland on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:09 pm:

Windows Media please...

Real Player ruined its reputation with too much spyware... my IT people also do not allow Real on any work PC's.

Thanks for importing John Dees wedding pic!

A weatherman truly deserves fall colors for the background of his wedding!

By Bek, fond du lac on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:10 pm:

Very nice pics today. It appears I missed the peak colors by about a week.
Yah, land is precious. I couldn't believe when I drove through the Kettle Moraine forest in here wisconsin the other day and discovered logging. My husband even was shocked. We never thought we'd see that here.

By ace,tx on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 08:29 pm:

Pasty Cam. & David- Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures of home sure makes us wannabes really home sick. David I close my eyes & can smell the fresh air & peace and the quite, wish I could be there. David please send my sympathy to the Clouther family for the loss of their dear mother,a truly grand lady. Take care & keep up the great work.

Project Sanguine then called seafarer?? then ELF.

By Paul Bunyon MN on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 09:38 pm:

Bek-Fond du lac
Logging and related industries supply, directly
& indirectly, hundreds of thousands of jobs in this country.Modern life is not possible without the thousands of products, ( many that people
are not even aware of )that come from a tree.
Billions of dollars in tax revenue is created
by these industries and jobs. Done properly,
( and most is )logging is not harmful to the forest. We should be thankful that trees are a renewable resource.

By Char MI on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:46 pm:

A part of aviation history was lost Saturday night with a fire at Yankee Air Museum at Willow Run Airport. Three planes a B25, B17 and a C47 were saved by the crew of the B25 that had just returned from an air show and discovered the museum on the second floor of the hanger to be on fire. The hanger burnt to the ground. Members and crews have made a commitment to build a new, larger and fire proof hanger and solicit artifacts from W.W. I and II to replace the articles lost in the fire. Brave crew to rescue the planes!

By troll in eagle harbor on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 10:48 pm:

Paul...Webberville.NOPE! Too many irons in the fire at this time of year...Had to be at work by one....Looks like Wednesday will be my first chance to get the dust off my lures.Hope to be home for Halloween!Can't wait to get across that BIG bridge!

By The Dam Guy, Parasite Creek on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 11:48 pm:

Shelly, handsome men are a dime a dozen. What about us ruggedly homely guys??? As for project ELF, I remember it all too well. Just another example of why we have to question the powers that be. I'm happy to see some of Marquette County featured last week as it is an area of greater than or equal to beauty as the Keweenaw... just don't tell anyone.

To Thad, thanks for linking Rainbow Bridge. It gave me comfort because I had to have my cat SuSu put to sleep today because of continuing health problems. Isn't it amazing how a pet can wind itself around your heart and how it loves you unconditionally. Loving thoughts to all who have lost their pet companions. A˛

Hey, Bthecute1. Didn't you see the smiley face at the end of Yoopr's post? They were being sarcastic. I've observed that you seem to have a bit of a hair-trigger. Keep the safety on and keep it pointed downrange, K? Sorry, a weapon metaphor. Now I'm in for it.

I've been searching the net to find fall U.P. photos since I didn't get to tour this year. I've been trying to get my now husband up there for the last 3 years since he's big on outdoors and would fall in love with it just like me, but it didn't work out again this year now that we're married and can GO ANYWHERE WE WANT!!!! (can you tell we're newlyweds?)I'd like to fine more fall pics to send him and show him what he's missing so that next year, there are no excuses. We love the fall and I got hooked on the Keweenaw Penn. from MTU alumni. Though "he's" out of the picture, I can still share the beauty with my husband. So feel free to load me up with sites, or your own personal pics, logging trails, and some traditional Copper Country 'must sees'. Thanks!

yowsa: What is a hair trigger? Think about it! :) Is that what makes my hair curly? Just adding a little excitement and keeping you all on your toes. Are you one of those people that dresses in camouflage and think we can't see you? This is the season for putting on orange - right? Oh, I'm not offended, I never gamble, except the stock market. :)

you must have been the one to give Ethel fits also.

Ohhhhhhhhhh! I remember Ethel.....she's the one that kept asking for lessons on how to play the stock market. Has she spent all your money yet. I hope they were good investments. I told her that if she follows my advise she could buy a five postage stamp size lot and even put a house on it. Seems to me that I also know about metaphors. But in my opinion, they certainly were not considered weapons.

Oh, by the way, the pictures by Charly and Dave of Laurium are absolutely beautiful. Wish I could come home sometime. There is not one ripple in that water. I bet the forest sounds were quiet, with the exception of birds twittering. Ahhhhh, the sound of quiet, and the smell of fresh air.

I think Autumn is my favourite time of year, especially in Michigan and Canada. The 3 Autumn pictures, the lighthouse, and Mackinac Bridge photos are especially nice.
