With each day’s look back into the archives of going on 20 years of Pasty Cam photos, we try to pick a theme for the day. Today it seems to be “getting high” over the U.P. We start out in 2005, with a shoebox memory courtesy of MTU Archives. This Shoebox Memory actually came from a book called “Old Reliable: An Illustrated History of the Quincy Mining Company”. It transports us to a place where Charlie has personally spent some time over the past few years: the top of the Quincy Mine shafthouse. See the big wheels in the left side of the second photo? He has climbed around these to get to our Pasty.Net broadband wireless access points, which blanket the Portage Canal valley with high-speed Internet service, from high atop Quincy Hill. Check out the guys at the top of that structure...they were on a mission to replace the old wooden building with the new steel frame shaft house. Talk about getting UP high!

Next view was snapped in 2007, coming to us from E. Neil Harri as he was flying over Stambaugh Airport, near Iron River. So neat to take in the view of the runway, just as if you yourself were flying the plane. Another U.P. High!

And the final photo from above was snapped in 2008, by Bill Haller. It was actually a Thanksgiving sunrise that year, which Bill captured as the bright rays began to cut through the morning fog over Portage Canal. I’m not sure where Bill was standing that morning, but he’s above the Canal, looking down on the scene. Yet another U.P. High!

Today’s video was recorded by Lake Superior Photography. An Aurora dancing high over Lake Superior in the Marquette area, in real time. The beauty here in the U.P. never ceases to amaze me, each and every day. Enjoy the “highs” from today!

Nice pix and video! I was impressed with the video and the sound of the waves hitting the shore, so I looked up the weather that night on 09-20-2015 and it was around 50 degrees...would have been nice to be there!
Nickname: Lucky Luke
How did those iron workers get down? Jazz, man...jazz.

Would love to see the Northern lights out here the
way you can in the UP. They're visible sometimes,
but it's always super late and super cold, neither
of which I'm fond of, lol.
