Three of the years' shots in today's review were taken at roughly the same location. Which years are they?

By Susan Caryl (Gilbsulmum) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 06:40 am:

Eagle river, Keweenaw Point, Copper Harbor?

By Susan Caryl (Gilbsulmum) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 06:45 am:

2000, 2001, 2007 Porcupine Mountains all taken by Dan Urbanski is my guess.
First Post
The "same location" was near Dan Urbanski. The first two are clearly at the same geographical location as well, but - as Johnofmi points out below - we aren't sure if Dan took the lightning shot from the same vantage point.

By Helen in the U. P.! (Lahelo) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 08:25 am:

They were taken in Union Bay.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 09:35 am:

Good morning! No early bird yet but I'm guessing it's not because Charlie hasn't gotten a correct answer. I'm pretty sure both Pat & Glenda & Helen are right with their guesses of 2000, 2001 and 2007 since Dan took them all. They were all awesome at any rate.

I'm wondering how Joyce got a picture of so many hummingbirds at a feeder at one time. Our fight each other off and we never have more than 2 at a time here without them getting angry with each other. To me, that's a very rare sight indeed. Great shot, Joyce.

By john mich (Johnofmi) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 10:04 am:

I don't see how one can determine that the 2007 picture was taken in the Porkies unless that is the only place where Dan took pictures. For 2005 I just guessed that the humming bird feeder was located in Copper Harbor. I don't think today's question can be answered without some "inside" information.

Good observations, John. It was a bit of a trick question.

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 11:01 am:

It is me again. I clicked on the words 'cam notes' and got different dates. Then I clicked the picture to the left of cam notes and got it for today.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 12:06 pm:

The wrong link on the main page has been corrected for Cam Notes. Thanks for pointing it out.

Yes, Mary is away for a few days (in Copper Harbor, as a matter of fact). But my normal editing this morning was interrupted by issues dealing with the current broadband stimulus grant application.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 02:18 pm:

Happy Anniversary Uncle Chuck and Vicki!!!! Hopefully you have many more.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 03:55 pm:

Broadband stimulation grant...that means no more Lear Jet for you Charlie.

Congratulations Uncle Chuck! Looks like you made it past the seven, the fourteen, the twenty-one and the twenty-eight year itch in good fashion.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 04:51 pm:

Congrats Uncle Chuck and beautiful wife Vicki. Twenty-nine years is a great accomplishment. Good for you!

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 05:13 pm:

Congratulations Uncle Chuck and Vicki. Just talking to the neighbors brother. He lives in Colorado and went to Tech. He was bragging about being married ten years, where Precious said wait till you hit forty three and then brag. She is waiting till forty five years of marriage, wants to see if the marriage last.

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 05:38 pm:

Hi Mikie

By Helen in the U. P.! (Lahelo) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 07:27 pm:

Congratulations to Uncle Chuck and Vicki! I hope you can have many more years to come!
BTW I am on vacation myself!! Relaxing went to Lake Superior yesterday and went swimming! Cooled us down for awhile anyways!
Have a great week.

By Pennie (Trolldiva) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 08:15 pm:

I thought it was interesting that for a long time the top of the Mackinaw lighthouse was painted red. When we were up there a couple of weeks ago it was painted black. Anyone know why they changed the color? It looked much better in red.

By Pennie (Trolldiva) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 08:16 pm:

was meaning to say the top of the lighthouse tower is red, not the top of the whole lighthouse.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, August 16, 2009 - 08:19 pm:

Actually, Pennie, if you got the postcard we sent you, you'd have seen that it was actually painted white except for the very top of the tower. But now it's all black. But you're right in that it doesn't look nearly as good, though.
