We look at some familiar landmarks in today’s archive shots. Beginning in 2011, Aladino Mandoli takes us up on Quincy Hill to get a glimpse of the Hoisthouse building, through the remains of a mining building that stood there long ago.

Then a year later, in 2012, the Shoebox Memory photo was a panorama of a group of tobogganers above Sault Ste. Marie. This photo was taken in the winter of 1886 – 1887.

The photo shared by Donna MacIntosh in 2015, takes us to Keweenaw Bay where Bishop Baraga stands watch over the communities of Baraga and L’Anse.

I tried finding a fun tobogganing video from somewhere in the U.P., but didn’t have any luck, so the next best thing for today is a video about the Sault Seal Recreation Area in Sault Ste. Marie. Check it out to see all the fun winter activities they have to offer there.

I remember back in the day (2002 I believe) when Nat and I lived in Red Jacket and she decided "Hey, let's go sledding today". So we went to Swedetown and the funniest thing occurred..... we were the only "adults" sledding down the hill. ;-)

The last time I went tobogganing was years ago in Rochester hills-MI on a very dark night. I was walking back up the hill and my feet slipped out from underneath me, causing me to fall face first and smash my face into the solidly packed snow. When I hit, all I can remember is a big white flash and when I got home my nose was the size of a sugar beet.

I have fond memories of sledding as a kid in Jackson Michigan. As an adult, I went with my brother & his daughter; we had wooden sleds with steel runners from our childhood. We were a lot faster and had more control than the kids with the modern plastic sleds or saucers.
