Quite the mixture of subjects from the archives today. Beginning back in 2007, with Joyce Tormala and a colorful Primrose plant. Just in time for Motherís Day, a virtual bouquet for all the Pasty Cam Moms.

Jump ahead to 2014 and we have a photo snapped by Gail Ongie, of her Mom, Beegu Keranen pointing to the flooding on Angman Road. The Traprock River was bursting at the seams and overflowing with all the melting snow that year.

Then in 2016, Donna MacIntosh was watching a showdown between two squirrels under her bird feeders. There was actually plenty of food for the both of them, but neither one was backing down from defending what they thought was their own turf. Too funny!

That brings us to the here and now, with Brita Haapala. Her family was outside enjoying the sunshine last Sunday, when she spotted one of her boys relaxing on the pond and had to snap a shot of that calming scene. For whatever reason, it made me think of Huckleberry Finn, all he needs is a fishing pole to complete the scene.

Dan Vaught takes us on a Drone trip from the woods and streams, to the big lakes and rivers of the eastern end of the U.P. Scenes include, Albany Creek, Prentiss Bay (Cedar Campus), "The Dunes" of Lake Huron, Zeigler's Lake (Goetzville, Michigan), the Village of DeTour, up the Saint Mary's river, to Sault Ste. Marie (Rotary Park) and finally a brief view of the Carmeuse Lime Stone Quarry. All filmed in 2015, with premier seats for the journey!

Thanks Dan Vaught; really enjoyed the tour!

As far as the 3rd picture......... is there any way
they can both lose?

Just another random thought..
There is a big difference between keeping your chin up and sticking your neck out.

Nice pictures. And I'm pretty sure I've
seen that video before, so much beauty.
The primroses make you excited to plant.
