Pasty Central's new warehouse?  No!  The new hockey rink/sports building at Camp Gitche Gumee in Eagle River.
(this is for all the guys who worked this spring and weren't able to be here for the roof completion)

This freighter looked like it was going to get stuck on the sandbar, just off the dunes in Eagle River.  The Pasty Cam-era man was ready to swim out and lend a hand.
(Compare the trees here to same view on April 3.)

If you visit McLain State Park this weekend, be sure to leave your bugs at home.  Clear and cold this morning by the lake.

How about those Red Wings last night, beating the Blues?  In the Copper Country, hockey stars begin training at an early age.
(Alex has now made an appearance on the Pasty Cam every month)

Kiwanis Club member and Michigan Tech Alumnus John Smallwood flashes a yooper smile.  John is also a resident at Still Waters.
(and Still Waters residents help make some wonderful  pasties!)

Pasty Cam running a little late today... good opportunity to catch our favorite time of the evening.
(we never get tired of Lake Superior beauty)
Sunday morning, May 17
The clear skies have returned this brilliant Spring morning.  New life everywhere... apple trees, lilacs, and cherry trees are all in full bloom.
(extremely windy in the Keweenaw last night)
Sunshine on Cliff Drive
Sunday evening, May 17
How quickly the weather changes in the Copper Country!  Just before the downpour started, a fast Pasty Cam shutter caught this lightning over Pontello's cabin in Eagle River.
(just after sunset, looking southwest)
