In case you're wondering about the snow here in the Copper Country, it has been coming, then going, then coming, then going...I'm having trouble keeping up with where it's at each day! This photo from Katie Keranen was taken during one of those "coming" moments and I'm at a loss as to where in the Keweenaw this sign could be. Can someone enlighten us as to its location?

Well, wherever it is, looks like there's snow there. I like to know when there's snow too, cuz people around here ask me when's a good time to go UP. They always know that I know where the snow is.

Why don't you just inform them of John Dee's site. That way you would always be right.....:)

I had an albino deer come right up to my car New Years Day in Gibraltar near Lake Erie Park, 10 of us drivers stopped to watch it head into the woods..I have heard of these in Presque Isle Park in Marquette, is this type of deer seen often in the U.P.??

Now that is a "welcoming" sight - - - SNOW!

Nice photo, Katie. I can't place where this shot was taken. If I were to take an off-the-cuff guess, I'd say it's along the M-26 cutoff between US-41 and Eagle Harbor (although not too confident with the guess as it's an unlikely location, and it seems the sign would have been constructed much further to the south).
Katie, you might have to enlighten us!

Isn't this on the Chassell-Painesdale Road?

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Tuesday, January 2, 2007 - 02:57 pm:

There are so many places that sign would fit, it looks familiar to me but I don't remember where I had seen it. The picture makes me think of the smell of Pine and wild Strawberries that let me know I hit the copper country in the summer. (without the snow of course)

By Katie Keranen (Yooperkate) on Tuesday, January 2, 2007 - 04:42 pm:

Shirley would be correct! I've travelled that road many times between school & home (Trimountain) so it's kind of in between Chassell and Painesdale!

Love the smell of the pine trees also, usually when I get around Crivitz, Wi is when I start smelling them more.Get the feeling of finally being away from the big city where all you smell is the exhaust of the car ahead.
Yum yum, those wild strawberries are the greatest, haven't had them a few years. Instead of stopping to smell the roses, I need to stop and smell those strawberries, oh wait eat those strawberries.

Pretty good for a transplant living in California, huh? That's a sign from my childhood - I always knew when we were almost to Baltic when I saw that and the old gas station on the corner where you turn for Painesdale/Baltic/South Range.
