Today's archive review of this day in the past 19 years, brings us to a Shoebox Memory, shared by Russ Emmons in 2004, which he found in an old newspaper from 1958. The old photo shows the middle section of the Lift Bridge being floated/pulled into place. Quite the engineering feat and impressive that someone thought about going up in a plane to photograph it from above.

The next shot is from the air, also, snapped by E. Neil Harri in 2013 above the Houghton County Fair that year. The people look like ants and the rides certainly don't look so intimidating from that height.

Keeping with the "from the air" theme, Jean Dessellier climbed up the Chutes and Ladders at Ray Kestner Waterfront Park, to snap a photo of the crowd at the Keweenaw Brewfest 2017 this past Saturday.

Today's video excursion is a glimpse of this year's Brewfest, starting with two of the modes of transportation to and from Isle Royale National Park making an appearance... the Ranger III and the Isle Royale Seaplane.

Capt. Paul and Dr. Nat--We are wondering how you are. Your Pasty
Cam family is worried about you.

I agree with Kosk, are you ok? You know you should be in the UP.
There might be an occasional bit of snow but no hurricanes. Post
when you. are able so we will know you are ok.

We were just thinking. "Adam" never had a bit of trouble with a mother-in-law.
