Photos by Paul Charlesworth and Debra Wright

On of my favorite spots in the Keweenaw is Fort Wilkins. In this shot you can barely see the barracks in the middle to the far right. In case you missed yesterday, Paul Charlesworth and Debra Wright gave us a view from that porch, as well as a classic pose by the cannon.

On the main Pasty Cam page are links to this "Wallpaper of the Week". The intricate detail of the scene makes for some BIG files. Personally, my favorite size is 800 x 600, but for those with huge screens, you'll find all the way up to 1600 x 1200. Perhaps, as we approach the 3 year anniversary of this daily feature, we'll have to put together a "screen saver" collection of shots from the Archives.

Thanks, Paul and Debra, for strapping cross country skis on the Pasty Cam.

It's been many years since I have been to Ft. Wilkins. The last time I camped ther I was chased to town by a cloud of black flies. I pedaled that bike as fast as I could go to try and lose them. What fond memories. Have to go back. Love this site. Check it every day.

Would love to have a Screen Saver of these great spots.

I use a free program called WebShots (www.webshots.com) to create a Pasty Cam and Personal revolving WallPaper and ScreenSaver. Its pretty cool. It will scale images, but I like to create them as 800 x 600 for better image quality. It's a Windoze program, I dont use screen savers on the Mac and Apple has a built-in revolving desktop picture.

The brown-doored barracks to the right I can clearly make out, but what of that parallel-barred structure at stream's end? A highway bridge? A lost Frank Lloyd Wright "Falling Water" house we haven't yet heard of?

That is the Road from Copper Harbor to Miami, FL.

A screen saver collection of shots from your archives would be wonderful. Several years ago when I was in Houghton I bought a screen saver collection of shots from the U.P. from one of the stores. Everyone who sees it wants to borrow the CD. There are 20 beautiful U.P. shots on it. Go for it!

Shouldn't this be Creek from Fanny Hooe??????

Two "Fridays" in one week is better than two "Mondays"...but not if it happens to be the "13'th" Great shot. Next Friday is GROUNDHOG DAY, and then it is down hill to spring!

I wish I had a scene like that around my house. All I have is a polluted creek and dirty brown snow.

Hi, love this sight. Used to live in Quincy or Franklin Mine which ever you remember. My Dad moved us to Ind. Miss the UP not the winters so much, miss the great skiing at the Tech. Are there any pictures of the mine in Quincey? Would love to get some place mats from there. Now live in AR which has some beautiful country too.

Beth in Livonia
I also lived in Livonia/Westland area for awhile. If you refer to the Rouge river running along Edward Hines Drive I ditto your sentiment (perhaps sediment is a more accurate term). We trolls have a great deal of this to deal with. Let's face it, polluted / dirty - brown is our future. Can anyone guarantee that this beautiful piece of heaven will not result in a Rouge nightmare? I think not. We can hold back the forces of progress only so long. I have to believe that at some point in time tracts of the Rouge river were every bit as wonderful as this one is. Progress comes with a price that the vast majority of people do not understand - including myself. This picture will be worth so much more than a WOW or a "how beautiful" someday - I only hope by then it's not too late. I have to apologize to Paul & Debra for being such a downer after witnessing such an inspiring photograph but it is tough to grow up with the Rouge in your backyard and not think of what once was...

10 Years ago I used to live in Chicago, IL., I love this kind of scenes specially when is snowing. I moved to Dallas,TX and also is a great place, without snow, but with beautiful weather all the year round. I would like to see more pictures for all seasons in Livonia, MI., where my "great and first love" lives with his family. God Bless You, I love you, Corazón de Poeta (W. Martín Rivera).
