This shot of Lake Fanny Hooe appeared on the Pasty Cam September 5, 1998. Today that photo would have just a little bit of color, as the trees begin their annual march toward the color show, which usually peaks in early October.

Today, Pasty.NET begins streaming WMPL-AM all morning and Jan Tucker returns to the station's line-up. See the details at www.pasty.net

Good morning everyone :) Dodging rain here this morning...and I can hear thunder in the distance.

So any pictures posted in the photo galleries from anyone who did the bridge walk yesterday? I am bound and determined that one of these Labor Days, I will do the walk across the Mighty Mac :)

What a great weekend in copper country. I got to stay at a friends 100 year old farm for the weekend. When I woke up Saturday morning, I could have sworn there was someone walking in the woods- to my amazement it was the dew falling from the trees. I have never been in a place so quiet and peaceful that I could hear the dew fall from trees!! The weather was beautiful. I packed all cold weather clothing thinking it was going to be a bit brisk, but ended up wearing shorts and t-shirt. LIFE IS GREAT IN COPPER COUNTRY!!

By maija in Commerce Township (Maija) on Tuesday, September 5, 2006 - 01:03 pm:

I have to agree with murtomania: weather is beautiful always in the copper country. Many wouldn't appreciate some of it, and I can totally understand how those who live there can get tired of some of it, but it is always unbelievably lovely to my southern MI mind!

Sur5er--Sorry, I didn't take pictures of the walkers, but I did write
about it in yesterday's "What's Up." Maybe one day we can have a
PastyCam contingent doing the Bridge Walk.

Are you sure those are hummers and not mosquitos Marsha??? ;-)

Dean and all at Pasty.net and .com,

great picture but who was Fanny Hooe?

copied from:http://www.fannyhooe.com/faq.shtml

Legend has it Fanny Hooe was the sister-in-law of a young officer assigned to Ft. Wilkins. She arrived at the Fort with the Captain William Alburtis family in 1846. Stories of her disappearance vary, either insisting she was picking berries outside the Fort and was either lost in the nearby forest, killed and eaten by a bear who resented her intrusion on his berry patch, or she was abducted by an Indian in retaliation for white man's intrusion on former tribal lands. More information can be found in the book "The Fanny Hooe Story. . . the passing of a legend" published by the Fort Wilkins Natural History Association

Channel 5 WBKP seems to be off the air. (?) I used to a ger an over-air signal but have been unable to get a picture for several days. Has there been a change made? Or is my TV broken? Anyone know???

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Tuesday, September 5, 2006 - 11:42 pm:

Kosk, I agree...it would be great for a bunch of us Pasty Cammers to get together and do the Labor Day walk across the Mighty Mac ;) I was chatting with Cotton yesterday about wanting to get together next year and do the Labor Day walk...and she said there was no way we would get her to walk across the bridge. Told her that was okay, we would allow her to crawl across the mid-span :)

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 - 05:56 am:


The height is bad enough, but the grated section is the part that is
really hard for me. We'll have to persuade Cotton that if I, who can
barely make it to the second rung of a ladder without feeling
queasy could walk it, she probably could too. And to think that my
father was a paratrooper and my uncles were ski jumpers...
Crawling would be an acceptable alternative I'm sure.

When we were kids we used to cross the trestles that ran between Lake Linden and Calumet. Oh my goodness, they were so high when you were kids and the spaces between the 6 x 6's (or whatever size they were) were wide. We were nuts!! Now, like Kosk, I can't climb past the 2nd rung of a ladder. Not sure about that Labor Day walk but have always wanted to do it. Per chance somebody could carry me? LOL

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 - 03:18 pm:

Only the middle two lanes of the bridge at mid-span are grated (the left south bound lane and the left north bound lane), Deb...so we'll just make sure to walk on the paved side, over the mid-span. Now do you feel a little less queezy? Kosk said she did it with no problem :)

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 - 04:14 pm:

If I could do those trestles, I think I can handle this without a problem. It's the darn 5 mile walk that concerns me. I'm old!!!

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 - 04:23 pm:

Piffle, Deb!
