Not all the trees change color this time of year in our neck of the woods. But as much like July as this looks, if the Pasty Camist had not been holding his breath, you would have seen it. 28 degrees late in the day.

Won't be long now. By the way, have you entered the snow depth contest at George's Eagle Harbor Web? Better hurry. And if you haven't voted on your favorites for the Pasty Cam 2002 calendar, only a couple of days left.

This is really a wonderful time of the year to be in Keweenaw. Those trails bring back so many memories. It is a quiet, relaxing walk until you flush up a partridge -- memory of it makes the hair on my neck stand up. Incidentally, was Jonathan walking alone on that trail?

This photo brings back alot of memories of being a little kid and walking through all the crunching leaves with my Dad and brother on those old paths and dirt roads in the Keweenaw ~ Looking at all the perspective Christmas trees and anticipating the first snow fall.
Thanks for the memories that this pic brings!

I just got my U.P. fix this weekend and I'm feeling much better.:) Went up to the Porkies with my bride Kathalina for a mini honeymoon. Saw a lot of great scenery even though the leaves were mostly gone. The areas of snowfall more than made up for it. Shot a lot of film while I was there, so perhaps I'll scan a couple of shots to send to the pasty cam and maybe they'll post something.
Bye for now

Did the MTU students really identify those trees as long-needle pines? Here in the sandhills of North Carolina we have the real thing, although we miss that invigorating weather.
