Were on tour here in the Keweenaw, with Walter Dennis. Hes giving us some great aerial shots of the Winter Wonderland that makes up this beautiful area many of us call home and others love to visit. The photos take us from McLain State Park, looking at the Upper Entry Lighthouse, to Ripley with a look at the Portage Canal, the Portage Lake Lift Bridge, the Isle Royale Ranger and Quincy Hill. All familiar places and sights.

Walter tops it off with a drone video that actually starts in Calumet with a flight between the St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church steeples and a look at some snowmobiles on the trail that goes through that area there. Then out to McLain and into Ripley for an aerial tour of Mount Ripley and a look up the Canal. We even get a glimpse of the Snowmobile Trail Groomer as it grooms the trail that travels along the old mining properties there. The perspectives from the air like this are always so interesting.

have the best music accompanying your videos and you
are really good at flying the drone!! Splitting the
steeples... quite daring of you!! :=)) I really

Love it, love it, LOVE IT. I cannot get out and
about that much anymore, so all the videos are so
greatly appreciated. I watch the people ski on Mont
Ripley, the drone view of it is incredible.

Thank You.

What chilly looking pictures. Makes me want to stay
inside, sit by a fire and read a book, lol.

But, like Mickill, I loved watching the skiing on
Mont Ripley. Very cool.

I heard they use the Ranger for winter offices. How
cool would that be?

And I'm with McKill too....

I turn on the ski hill site on the Michigan Tech
webcams and it amazes me how young some of those
kids are that come barreling down that ski hill.
Then you have the parents coming down with kids as
they are teaching them. Wish they had a camera on
another part of the ski hill. Love to watch it just
the same.
