Nice slide show this morning. I loved the one of the Quincy tram. What a view!

By Smfwlk (Trollperson) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 07:30 am:

Mornin'. Sure wish I could get the slide show to run on my computer!

By RD, Iowa (Rdiowa) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 07:34 am:

A fast start to the Pasty Cam this morning: two early birds and a woodchuck in the first minute!

By RD, Iowa (Rdiowa) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 07:35 am:

Slideshow seems OK to me.

I love the photo of Bare Bluff. That was my first hike in the UP several years ago thanks to Pasty Cam, who provided information on the bluff several years ago.

It's a great hike through the woods, mostly uphill and then all of a sudden you walk out on the bluff and see all the way to the tip of the Keweenaw and beautiful Lake Superior…what a view!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 08:24 am:

Thanks, Charlie!

Slide show works fabulously for me. I think it's the best thing that pasty has done in a long time. I so enjoy it every morning! Still hoping for a CD of all of them. We could look at them over and over.

The veiw from Bare Bluff is now my background on my computer. Much better than the view of the parking lot out my window here at work. :-( But, hey, it's Friday! Only 7 hours of work to go! :-)

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 09:17 am:

Hey, Sharon: For a couple mornings now I've seen that crow waiting for you to put the bird feeders out!

By Connie, Eagle River Alaska (Connie8792) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 09:24 am:

Wow, love the Bare Bluff picture. I need to find that place the next time go home.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 09:39 am:

Anyone else want to ride that tram?

By Bob Williams (Wabbit) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 11:20 am:

Bare Bluff is a great view! We hiked up the trail from behind a couple of years ago. We then followed the trail down around the front. I want to caution people not to take the front trail. It is extremely steep with slippery rocks and there is pretty much no going back once you have started down. I feel like I nearly lost my life several times on the way down and I have done a lot of hiking or the past 25 years. The trail markers on the way down are difficult to follow also. My recommendation is if you go up make your return trip down the back side.

By Sharon I. Smith (Sharons) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 12:06 pm:

Marsha - yes, I have a pair of crows that are feeding a fledgling, and they seem to think my feeders are an easy source of grub. Now I know where the seed on the deck is going!

By Uncle Chuck @ Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 12:07 pm:

Bare Bluff is great to see from the water too! (unless Norma's drivin the boat-lol)

By Norma in Midland (Normainmidland) on Friday, August 22, 2008 - 12:15 pm:
