Those of us viewers that aren't early risers, can thank Donna MacIntosh for getting up at the crack of dawn and capturing the sun beginning to rise for us all to see. These photos were taken from the head of Keweenaw Bay between L'Anse and Baraga with only seconds in between each shot. Donna was UP enjoying the rising of the sun from the lookout where the Bishop Baraga statue stands guard (she says he was a quiet sunrise partner:). Lucky him, he gets to take in this view daily!

These are gorgeous, and not to repeat myself, but that's another area that I wish they'd chop down some trees. You can't view him as easily as you used to. It's sad that the trees are taking over all the beauty. I love trees, but not when I can't see all of the gorgeous scenery that's out there for all of us to take in.

Those Pictures of the water look awful inviteing. Its been in the middle to high 90's here in NE Central Missouri with the heat indices around 105. It would be nice to run jump in the lake. Its 79 now THats our coolest tonight.
Great Pictures.
If they cut down the trees then someone would complain that they were cutting the trees.

I betcha those trees up there are helping to hold that hill together...

maybe they could thin it a bit, though.

I'm sure alot of us that were in attendance yesterday at the 150th celebration of the Diocese of Marquette at the Superior Dome, felt our saintly first Bishop's presence. It was an awesome celebration.

What beautiful pictures! I can't think of much that beats a sunrise or sunset.

My Dad took me to the workshop in Lake Linden where the sculptor was creating this statue. It was amazing to see how big the pieces are and how intricate. I feel priveleged to have seen this work in progress.

As for Keweenaw Bay, what I wouldn't give to be there now instead of this steamy heat we're in down here in Motown area.

i stopped to visit the bishop on the way up to isle royale last month, AMAZINGLY huge ! But, i was surprised that i was the only person there. Just me and the bishop - you'd think more people would be there visiting !

Good Morning from Mishawaka, IN. Spent sometime with Bishop Barga just about 3 weeks ago. It was a beautiful site. I agree with Deb about the trees. Something needs to be done. I knew the site was there somewhere but never saw it from the road. Finally I spotted the sign, which isn't any to large for my old eyes.
As we drove along the bay a bald eagle was sitting on a log. We turned around to go back to get pictures. I thought the eagle would have taken off by the time we got back but there it set waiting for us. It was the first eagle I had ever seen.

I bet the Bishop appreciates the cool breeze on his face about right now. The temperature up there is very ideal compared to large portions of the country. As for the freezing cold in the winter, you can always bundle up a little bit more. Down in the south, there's little you can do other than go in a pool or surrender to air conditioning to get cool. The Bishop has a good job with a nice view.

Sitting here in the hot, muggy weather of Grand Island, NE. On our way home from a week in Rocky Mountain National Park. Really beautiful country. And clear, crisp air. At 8000+ feet elevation it was very comfortable. Drop to Boulder and it was hot and a little bit more muggy; but not much.

By David Soumis (Davesou) on Monday, August 6, 2007 - 08:32 pm:

this is way getting OT..sorry, but talking about camping at 8000 feet brought back memories of a camping trip we made out in the Rockies.
We tented at 10,800 ... During the day it was a very nice crisp 70 or so....but at got darn in the 30s.

By Donna (Donna) on Monday, August 6, 2007 - 09:18 pm:

Perfect up at the Bishop's shrine. And there were 2 young ladies walking in, who had biked there that morning. That's it. The candle hut up there is really a wonderful plan!
