Beauty in all four of our photos here today. The beauty of historical preservation starts us off with a shot from Krista Poirier in 2006. She was making a visit to Fort Wilkins in Copper Harbor to see what it was like at this military post on the tip of the Keweenaw in the 1800ís.
Then in 2009, George Hoyem brought us the beauty of fishing as the sun is setting. What a perfect way to end a day, relaxing with a fishing pole in hand, watching the sun color the sky and the water below. It doesnít get much better than this.
Weíre in Eagle Harbor, back in 2012 for the next beauty. Eric Stewart snapped the puffy cloud photo, which is a perfect example of the peace and serenity to be found all over the U.P., north, south, east or west. Just when you think it canít get any better, a scene like this shows up.
Our last beauty for today, was snapped by Mike Rudzki on a recent trip to the Keweenaw. He was staying in Eagle Harbor and was able to capture a sunrise peeking out from behind the clouds. Iím looking at those chairs on the beach there, thinking that would be the perfect spot to watch this beauteous event taking place.
We spent some time in Eagle Harbor with the pictures today, so we might as well finish the page with a video there, too. Letís join Jeff Curto for some of his impressions of Eagle Harbor.
Just a reminder that today is Patriot Day. A day set aside to remember the victims of the 9/11 attacks. It is recommended that you fly your flag at half-mast and observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Remembering those that lost their livesÖ RIP and those whose lives were forever changed by that day.

Very moving ceremonies today. They always are,
but the speeches by Vice President Pence and
President Trump were solemn and touching and
appropriate. May we always remember those who
were attacked, those who ran into the buildings to
save others with no thought of themselves, and
those, realizing what was going on, made the
choice to save others and took down the plane over
Pennsylvania, rather than have it continue
on to DC. God bless America, She is a land of

I agree, Jbuck.
