Between the rain and the snow Mother Nature has been providing us with UP North, traveling the highways has been a quite an excursion of late. This is US 41, making its way around Keweenaw Bay, heading towards L'Anse. David Soumis captured the sun shining behind Bishop Baraga as he watches over the Bay. Looks like David picked a decent day to check out the latest snow-covering, with the road looking pretty clear for the moment. Here in the U.P. though, we know that can change in the blink of an eye. With all that white blanketing the ground, it sure makes the shore look brighter and Lake Superior a deeper blue.

The start of a quiet time of reflection as we slowdown and rest for the winter. Thanks for providing the beautiful setting and refreshing/renewing pictures of the water. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

What a beautiful way to begin the week of Thanksgiving. We are so blest. Thank you David for the outstanding pictures.

Can't wait to see those shores! I'm thankful
that I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving in the USA
for the first time in 34 years. Better than that,
though, I'll be celebrating it in the UP with my
beloved family. Now that's certainly
something to be thankful for...

I aways enjoyed the Southern tip of the bay while driving back and forth to MTU. It was always a good spot to enjoy one of the many great views along the trip. Thanks for the memory.

Good, safe, Thanksgiving to all. Remember to be thankful. With all life's griefs and cares, the way to cope is to concentrate on its lovely times.

Most of our snowmobile vacation pics are of various Lake Superior snowy shores! Can't seem to have too many! Love 'em!

Really nice picture of the water! Looks chilly!

Thanks David for the beautiful winter pictures. For all the photos I've taken or copied of the Lake , these are the first with snow on the beach. Just wonderful. We had our Thanksgiving last Sat. and all went well. Interesting to see my kids come without their kids because of jobs or travel, or US service. My how things change but now it's with the next generations. (sigh)

By Marge Roberts (Fluffyyellow) on Monday, November 21, 2005 - 03:13 pm:

It's all a matter of perspective. The top picture is backward in my opinion. I'm used to seeing the lake on the right as I head from Michigamme to the tip of the peninsula while on vacation. I see it this way on the way back, and who pays attention to the scenery on the way back?

By dave sou (Davesou) on Monday, November 21, 2005 - 07:11 pm:

thanks everyone for the comments on the pics ...
I was on my way back as well ... its extremely hard to leave, isn't it?

Next to the bridge, this is my second favorite sight as we are on our way to Dollar Bay. One time I took seperate shots of left,middle and right side of the bay and someday I hope to have a painting made off them. That view is so pretty.

Mskatie,we had a Thanksgiving dinner Sat also. Alex,and family came and my daughter and family joined us also. My son wasn't feeling well. Now I am getting ready for this turkey day!!! My niece and family are joining us.This is their first Christmas down this way.

Nice pictures, Dave, beautiful scenery with the snow on the ground. I like road pictures.

and family. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving and
