Here's a shot I received some time ago from Taka Aoki, at Michigan Tech. I've been waiting for just the right day, a blend of green and sunshine, and today is that day here in the Copper Country. Makes me want to take a long walk down Five Mile Point Road and breath some of that pure vitalizing air... ah...

Visit us soon

Now this sign makes me REALLY lonesome for the Copper Country. While living there I never gave that sign much thought, until I moved away and have lived in various areas of the country, and now know that sign is truly a true statement. All of you who have lived there all your life, I hope you know how fortunate you are. If I had it to do over again, I would opt for clean area living versus job opportunity. Oh well, thank goodness we have Pasty Central to help us hang on to these great memories. Thank you, Charlie!!!

To be honest, I took this photo in the middle of October 2001. We had a late winter last year. Those greens probably knew the winter would come late, and dared to pop their heads up above the ground. The day must have been a little too nice for them to go hibernation.

p.s I will specify the date on my photos from next time. Sorry about that. =)

I like that consonant rub between Finnish and Japanese!
Aoki sounds as Maki Finnish as last names come!
And that top pic looks like greenhouse hasta or lilies of some kind...?
Thanks to Charlie for that "purest most vitalizing air on earth" billboard...
Brings it all back...brings it all back home to roost...

Hello all, Just came across your site, and I think it's great. My Great Grandfather, and Grandfather worked in the mines. My dad was born in Calumet. They moved to Detroit in the 40's. But I am bringing my dad back up to see where he lived when he was a kid. Looking forward to visiting this summer. And my Grandma made a pretty good pasty. She was born there to.

I think my great grandfather and grandfather actually worked in ahmeek mines. I wish my grandpa was still here to ask him. Anyway, still looking forward to seeing the family history.

Wow, do I miss home! Last time I was up in Calument was August of 1994. We used to have a camp on Lake Medora and I tell everyone here in Connecticut about how great the fishing was. I still fish, as a matter of fact I bring my granddaughter along now. Hope to come home to vist soon! Don't miss the snow though...:)
