Shawn Wyant has documented a number of trips made to the U.P. over in the Guest Gallery. The most recent one yielded these photos, from the Horseshoe Falls area near Munising. The tale behind this marker with its own little guardian, must be an interesting one I'm sure... anyone know the rest of the story? From what I understand, the actual falls is on private property, drops 20 ft. into a pool below and forms a natural amphitheater, surrounded by abrupt slopes. There's also a trout pond nearby where visitors can feed rainbow trout. With most of the leaves already covering the ground, it won't be long before the area falls will be stopped in mid-descent, by the cold temperatures freezing up the flowage! Yet another beautiful aspect of the many cascades dotting the landscape UP North.

Great morning to everyone! Actually cool down here in Dallas at 50.

Good Morning Everyone.
Great picture of the falls.
That is the first "Nothing Happened" monument I'v ever seen. That is how I like my saturday afternoons.

Good Morning

Cool in Lansing, MI at 31 F.

Miss the Copper Country.

I saw the "Nothing Happened" sign for sale in a catalog some years back; as I recall it was connected with public broadcasting in some way. I wanted to buy it for my brother to post on his house in rural Maryland, where every hundred yards there is an historical marker commemorating the Army of Northern Virginia's crossing of the Potomac, or the ubiquitous 'George Washington Slept Here'. How did he ever manage to become Father of His Country if he was in bed all the time? Ummm.. don't anyone answer that.... Great pictures, by the way!

To Lena, MN on Monday,
I've a picture of a big wave taken during a snowstorm a couple of years ago on my album. The house on the shore is where I hope to retire and is two stories with a steep roof. You can see the size of the wave in comparison. The other stuff in the air is mostly snow and spray reaching me where I took the picture. The site is on the north shore of the Keweenaw west of Copper Harbor. You can find the picture if you go to the album listed below;

The other pictures near it are taken in the spring and show what wind driven spray can do in subzero temperatures. I'm re-posting this in hopes you visit the site today as it was early morning before I saw your post of Monday.

Good Morning. This is a fun photo. I used to go to Munising (from Marquette) to see the falls in the area often. The Horseshoe Falls were always the favorite. We loved feeding the fish in the trout pond. The falls are wonderful in the winter too.

Dick B: awesome pictures!

By Roudy Mi on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 09:16 am:

I know several places where that same thing happened! ! !

By Jack in CT on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 09:24 am:

There are some days I could put that marker on my desk here at work! With all the pictures in the Guest Gallery I haven't seen yet I'm sure there will be many more days in the future too.

By Sarah, Central WI on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 09:28 am:

As always, wonderful pictures. The silly picture made me smile. Thanks!

By Elizabeth Mi. on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 09:38 am:

Always good to start out the morning with a
reason to laugh:) What a beautiful pic of the falls. Thanks!

Hope the character on the chair gets bundled up for winter.

By Lena, MN on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 10:18 am:

Keith and Cyn, thank you for that photo. We better not build too close to the water:) Looks very cold and wet.

By Chuck, IL on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 11:08 am:

Speaking of "Nothing Happening"....I like to get up in the morning with nothing to do and by bedtime, only be half-done!

By UP girl livin' in NJ on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 11:49 am:

I miss all the falls up there. They are so beautiful, exspecially in spring with all the run off.

By Joe S., Essexville MI on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 01:45 pm:

Hey Bob, thanks for uploading your "Bash at the Big House" photos. They're great! Our son is in the pep band and we trolls (Essexville) went down to cheer the Huskies on and see our son. I actually picked my wife, son, and myself out in one of your images. We were setting over near where the MTU pep band sat. The game could have ended better (game ending injuries to Mettlach, Marano, and Berger sure didn't help) but what a beautiful day for a football game.

Go Huskies in the NCAA playoffs and congratulations on bringing home the GLIAC championship trophy!

Happy Birthday Mom!

By Jason, Tennessee on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 03:28 pm:

Once again a great bunch of photos. I don't get a chance to check this page often but when I do I find myself losing track of the time just catching up. Missing home this time of the year most is the 9th of November and I just took my a/c window unit out! Keep up the great pictures folks!

By Karen... on Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 05:03 pm:

The photos are nice.
