Walk in the Woods    ...scroll down to share comments
Photo by Nathan Alwine

Mary Drew at Pasty Central on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 07:13 am:

The foliage across the U.P. is in various stages of hanging on to the branches yet, not as colorful, but still splashes here and there! Nathan Alwine and his buddy check out the progress together today. Kind of looks like this guy is anxious to get on with his exploring, sniffing and frolicking in the woods! Can't say that I blame him... sounds like something I'd like to be doing too. Checking out the splashes of red here and there, catching the scent of fall in the air, and just cavorting along a wooded trail!

Good morning!

By dave s wisc on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 07:17 am:

fall was always my favorite season in the UP..used to walk out in the woods such as this...crackling leaves, slight wind...anfd the smell of the leaves...crisp...with a bit of sun and 50 degrees....

By Janet from Ohio on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 07:38 am:

We always come to the Yooper for our summer vacation but would just love to come in the fall to see how beautiful it is so thank you for your pictures.

By Yooper on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 07:40 am:

Looking forward to getting back home to
Houghton for a couple days this week.
Looking forward to it. Big weekend for the
MTU huskies!!!!

By Sarah, Central WI on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 08:58 am:

Beautiful picture Nathan! ... I come to this site for relaxing pictures & wonderful posts.

By Doug the Troll, Wixom MI on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 09:03 am:

Autumn is my favorite time for a walk in the woods. And if I'm fortunate enough to catch a bright sunny day, all the better. But even a walk in the rain with the leaves falling around me is a time to enjoy and remember always. Get out there and enjoy it.

By Ruth S. Minocqua. Wi. on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 09:19 am:

...I check Pasty Cam every morning for the joy of the pictures (of so many of the places I have been pleased to visit) and the friendly banter and I can't tell you how much I enjoy it.

By Ann in Indy on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 09:23 am:

There's a plane at the airport, sure wish I could have been on it. Nothing better that a walk in the woods in the UP at any time of the year.

By Jo - Fond du Lac, WI on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 09:28 am:

My 8-year-old son and I were in the UP last weekend. This picture reminds me of our hike along Hungarian Falls in Hubbell on Friday! Absolutely gorgeous weather with a lot of leaves still on the trees. Picture perfect!

By MTU Alum, Texas on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 09:39 am:


Get out and support the Huskies Football, Basketball, and Volleyball teams in Ann Arbor next weekend!

Also, the biggest MTU Alumni Event of the year, prior to the Football game, on the UofM golf course.

Get your tickets now, be a part of history, help break the Div. II Football attendance record. The record was originally set by two "non-Michigan" teams playing at Michigan Stadium. Surely, football fans in the great state of Michigan can do better ! We need to set the record straight. MTU -vs- Grand Valley St. at Michigan Stadium. November 6, 2004.


By Mary Ann, WY on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:03 am:

Last October I was visiting my family in the UP and while I was there went to my uncle's camp. This road reminds me of the one I walked down kicking up all the leaves and smelling the fall. Oh the memories. Miss the fall back in the UP.

By Cyn from Unda DaBridge on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:13 am:

ahhhh, i so miss the U.P. This photo reminds me of a lot of walks.

By Nate Alwine on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:17 am:

Cool, its nice to see Toby the dog taking the spotlight today. Thanks for the compliments on the photo, but this picture is the work of my wife Hilarie. So nice shot honey :)

I see the rivers are coming to life in the L'Anse area. Perhaps I should grab my kayak and head to Canyon Falls before things freeze over.

have a nice day everyone

By Ahmeek Cliff Dweller on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:35 am:

Phillip Peterson, don't worry, what is way better than getting the early bird is when your post is edited for comment. Then, you've REALLY arrived!! LOL!! I can hear my sistahs now, "That isn't surprising".

Have a good day, everyone, keep the smiley faces comin'!

By Lena, MN on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:45 am:

Would love to be taking my dogs on a trail like that. Gorgeous colors. Hey, Jocko. I was just kidding about the Viking thing. :)

By Lori , St. Clair on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:48 am:

If you stand real still you can hear the echos of the trees, and the rustle of the leaves. I can feel the nip on my cheeks and my fingers are cold.
I smell the mellowing of the leaves and earth setteling down for a winters nap. The sky is gray with dark snowlike clouds just waiting to deliver winters glory. I am homesick can you tell?

By Dr. Nat in Nevada on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:02 am:

Good morning!
I love the photo today. I can almost feel the crisp air touching my cheek with chilly fingers, hear the leaves crackling beneath my feet, and smell that unique scent of autumn in the northern woodlands.
I am not from the Upper Peninsula. I am actually from nowhere in particular, but spent most of my life in the desert and I love the desert. But the pastycam photos always remind me what I loved so much about living in the Keweenaw for a couple of years. Thanks for the great photos!

By Marie, Howell, MI on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:08 am:

This is always the best part of my day to look at the photos and read the notes. Hey to my son Buzz up at MTU. You are truly lucky to be enjoying this beautiful place! Have a good one everyone!

By Trish, WA on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:15 am:

Good morning from western Washington!
Hello all- there will be a full lunar eclipse this evening.
Keep your fingers crossed for clear skies where you live!
It will be between 10:23 - 11:45 Eastern Standard Time.
(so that means we get a quick peek, and then it's back to
game 4...)

By Roudy Mi on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:17 am:

On this date in 1929 according to weather History on intellicast,Ishpeming received 27" of snow in 24 hours to establish a Michigan record.
Also , in the CC people use to put their broom across the door when they weren't home. Any comments on this unusual habit that has fallen by the way. Origins,was it cultural,a CC thing only?

By Candy, CA on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:30 am:

Good morning from sunny CA -- at least for now. We will likely miss the eclipse in the showers predicted for later this afternoon and evening. Thanks, Hilarie Alwine, for the great shot -- I, too, miss fall in the Yoop, walking the hunting trails in the Keweenaw looking for little chickens.

By jack j on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:35 am:

Anyone remember the Senaca Lake trail between Mohawk and the Lake.
It started on the corner by Old Mike Supanich's

By R Somero CA on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:51 am:

Sure do remember the broom across the door. We did it at my grandparents' place in Fulton-Horseshoe Bend to be exact.

By Matt from Fulton in GB on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:03 pm:

My Grandma Luokkanen on Seneca St in Fulton did the same thing with the broom across the door.

By Alan, Kansas City, MO on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:05 pm:

What does putting the broom across the door mean? Did you do that when you left the house and no one was home?

By Matt from Fulton in GB on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:09 pm:

That's it exactly, Alan, and no one ever went in when they saw that. The 'good ole days' of trust before all the home alarms were needed

By Kathy from Whitmore Lake/Cheboygan on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:17 pm:

Hi all. With regard to tonight's lunar eclipse, here's a link to an article. If visible (ie, no clouds), it should be a nice spooky pre-Halloween treat: blood red.

By Patti, TN on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:18 pm:

We used to leave the broom outside the door, just to sweep the snow off our boots/shoes before coming in......

Any way to see a preview of the photos chosen for the Memorial Calendar? I'm sure they are all spectacular.

Best we can do at the moment is to provide a link for you to check out the 36 photos that were in the running for the calendar, which can be viewed here:
"In Memory of Dan Urbanski"

By Steph in Alameda, California on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:32 pm:

Hi all!

Wow, I can't believe how much today's picture reminds me of a painting my mother gave me. Back in the 1970's my mom studied art, and her teacher had painted a Michigan Autumn landscape. He gave that to her, and she gave it to me later on. Even the placement of the yellow leaves through the center of today's image is like the painting I have!

Sometimes I truly miss Michigan.

By BCT,mi on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 12:50 pm:

With regards to the broom,trust and respect went hand in hand. You could trust others to respect your property. With more of each there would be less need for alarms and such , and walking the dog down the 2 path ,kicking leaves in the process, would be even more fun.

By maryding, Laurium on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 01:09 pm:

During my childhood in the 1960's, the broom across the back door was common among our friends and relatives in Bootjack, Mud Lake, and Jacobsville (where our farm was). I am unsure if it was a cultural or a rural thing but they were all Finns and lived on farms. I also seem to recall it meant no one was on the property and that they weren't in the fields or woods so no need to go looking for them or wonder where they were.

By CP, Little Betsy on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 01:20 pm:

I'd love to be walking in the woods, fall is a great time of year in the CC, my dog Rocco would love to kick up a chippie or two. Great Pic, will be at Little Betsy 11/15 with the guys, can't wait. Hey Ben, can you handle that cannon? I'm only bringin my 44, that's all I'll need. Marty, bring a life jacket for the truck this year, eh! Dougie, how about Prime Rib and White fish this year! We're low on fire wood, what is gramps gonna do? Mike are you going to name miss Hedi the deer hunter's queen? Charlie, did you change the oil in big red? Scott and Adam are you coming up this year? Hey Tem and Queets, the coffee is on. It's the second week of deer camp and all the guy's are here! It does'nt get any better then this!

By EM on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 01:23 pm:

Had a neighbor in Mass who put the broom left outside for sweeping boots across the door if she came to visit and didn't find you home. You always knew she had been there.

By CP, LB on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 01:42 pm:

Marty, time to trade the ZR2 in for a Hummer, don't you think? I can't ride in the back of thatlittle truck any more, time to buck up!

By Marty,Little Betsy wanna be on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 01:51 pm:


By Marty,Little Betsy gonna be on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 01:55 pm:

No Hummer unless your buying it..besides they are harder to pull out of the beaver ponds and mud holes...and you know i'll find at least one of the above...see ya

By CP , Little Betsy on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 02:15 pm:

Hey Marty LB Long Time, that's got me thinkin, if Mike can't come U.P., we are going to need another 4 wheel drive, Ben will bring his Jeep, Doug will have his Navigator just in case, I guess we'll be ok, swampers are ready, tow strap, life jacket, flare gun, knife, and beef jerky, can't think of anything else, can you? Oh yeah, the ultimate Waylon CD, we're good to go!

By maijaMI on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 02:21 pm:

Have a great trip, Little Betsy guys. Send us a picture or tell us an incident or two when you get home.

By LB, dishwasher& coffee man on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 02:34 pm:

maijaMI, what happens at deer camp stay's at deer camp, just kiddding, If Marty does'nt drowned us, and Doug does'nt kill us with his cooking, or grampa does'nt burn down with his hot stove fires, we'll have a U.P. story to tell, thanks for the well wishes.

By L-O-V-E Pastycam! on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 02:35 pm:

As a Yooper of Finn backround, the broom in the door is not familiar to me... I'm gonna ask my mom, who grew up around Bruces, Ewen area.
LOL! My first thought was the lady of the house said to herself, "The heck with the sweeping, I'm going to the neighbors for coffee and visiting!"

By CJ in MN on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 02:53 pm:

My grandmother always put a rock in front of the door when she left the house, if the rock had been moved when she got back she would know that someone had been there while she was gone. It was a good sized rock, but one she was able to move. It was her security "thing". Just a thought as to why the broom was put in the door.

By Mr. Bill on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 02:54 pm:

A broom at the door was used as far away as rural farms in eastern Kentucky back in early 1900's, according to grampa. Same message, we're not home.

By Visitor in Appleton on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 03:49 pm:

Jack J,
I have walked the trail from Mohawk to Seneca Lake with my sons. My wife is from Mohawk, lived on corner of Mohawk (US 41) and 3rd. She and her brothers called it spooky trail, I think. Now there is a new house at the end of 3rd Street just across the train right of way or snowmobile (snow cat) trail. That is where we would start out. Have not been on the trail since the new house was built.

By Former Mohawk Kid on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 03:57 pm:

I remember the trail well...Walked it from Eldergrove to Seneca lake many times...Stopped to drink from the creek on the way.Can't mention the name of the rock on here, but we used to sit on it and clean all of the nitters that we picked. Then we sold them for $.05 a jar. Also put the broom across the door when we left the house in number 5 location

By CJ in MN on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 04:03 pm:

What are nitters?

By Former Mohawk Kid on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 04:05 pm:

Hazel Nuts

By Ron, Michigan on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 04:12 pm:

To Jack J.--Are you from Mohawk?

TO Former Mohawk Kid--When did you live in Mohawk? I went to Mohawk School through 1965. Maybe we know each other.

By Ben, Little Betsy on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 04:57 pm:

i think my jeep can handle anything the UP can throw at me, as long as the road has a good bottom (uh grandpa?) i am going to be sure to bring the cheese for the cheeseburgers, and cant forget the magazines for our usual lunch time visitors since grandpa cut off the exspensive cable. think my cannon could knock out a window in the manitou lighthouse from horseshoe bay? also i think we need some new recruits for deer camp, im sick of doing the dishes as the youngest guy there... comin' up nate?

By Jimmer in Houghton on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 05:37 pm:


Did a quick search on the web and found that in some cultures, a broom was put across a door to ward off witches/vampires/gypsies, etc.

Fitting for the upcoming Halloween season but I would not recommend that tripping hazard in today's litigious (sp?) society, eh?


By Jim Copper Country on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 06:05 pm:

Yes, I very much remember the broom-across-the-door thing...both ways... those finding nobody home and leaving notice they'd come over, and those going out from home and leaving note nobody's home. Apparently, broom folks were either/or....hmmmm??

By Candy, CA on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 06:48 pm:

Apparently, laying a broom across the door when you were away was an old Finnish tradition, described here about Elo: http://www.angelfire.com/mi2/yooper2/elo.html

We had electricity but no telephone. Friends and neighbors would just drop in on each other to visit. Crime was nonexistant so there was no reason to lock our doors. It was customary to prop a broom across the outside of your door to let visiters know that you were not at home.

By Helen on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 07:17 pm:

Orange red fingers at
the base of her gown
A garland of chestnut
leaves circle her crown
She waves her hand high,
and the leaves loose their greens
Then fall to the ground
for their lovely Fall Queen

For several years we used to visit the Porkies
in Winter to go x-country skiing and always
enjoyed seeing Dan Urbanski's artwork, so it
is with sadness that I must ask, what
happened to Dan Urbanski?

Editor's note: Check back in this
Pasty Archive for a week long memorial to Dan...

By downstate don on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 07:47 pm:

Just a reminder...don't forget to watch the Lunar
Eclipse...should be happening between 9:30 and
10:00 tonight. Maybe you'll be lucky and see some-
one flying past it on a broom.

I'm enjoying the Mohawk and Fulton coversations, being as I'm from Fulton. Small world!

By Marty.little betsy wanna and gunna be on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:29 pm:

ben that jeep auta do just fine if you dont spin her too many times on the way up...looking forward to seeing you there...gets me off dish duty...and i'm glad dougs coming up to cook for us i'd hate to have to eat my own cooking and i need a good taste of that gourmet cooking just too keep me sane...see ya there

By CP, soon to be @ LB on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:51 pm:

Marty & Ben, Doug is doing the cooking barring any unforseen delays that might keep him home. Prepare to put on a few pounds boys! Just think, Jilbert's Ice cream, Toni's bakery, the Jam Pot, and we have'nt even had dinner or got in the woods yet, lol.

By Yooper on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 10:57 pm:

Anyone get to see the eclipse?

By Lena, MN on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:12 pm:

I tried, but we have a fine, cold mist here. Can't see a thing. How about you?

By al on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:23 pm:

Lena, you won't be able to see the eclips in Minnesota. You'll need to be further south, somewhere in Iowa, or 30,000 feet higher. Too bad, eh?

By Steve,WI on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:47 pm:

Right now the whole sky is a weird orange color

By downstate don on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 11:53 pm:

Got a good clear view of the lunar eclipse here in
lower Michigan. The sky was clear enough to see
the whole thing. Right afterwards the sky got cloudy and only a faint viewing of the moon.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 12:02 am:

When I was a little kid in Paavola people used the broom across the door to say 'No one's home.' And you knew the door wasn't locked. No eclipse here in Cornell tonight, too cloudy. Shucks and darn! 8>(

By Candy, CA on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 12:09 am:

We're just coming out of the totality phase here in CA, but a big bank of clouds made seeing it pretty tough. I was hoping for at least a glimpse of the red moon.

By Trish, WA on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 01:03 am:

We slipped outside during the top of the eighth (around
8:30) and viewed the eclipse with the binoculars. We had
clear skies all day. The moon was rising in the southeast
and was by then a glowing pumpkin-orange. Amazing!

By Julie S., Kiel, WI on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 01:15 am:

We were coming out of Wal-Mart in Plymouth, WI and my son got so excited! We saw the eclipse. Really was quite the site for an 8 year old boy especially when he is the one who spotted it. :)

By Bee - Sarasota, Fl on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 01:40 am:

Helen...the poem you submitted was lovely...Fall entering the oncoming winter season. I just love this site. Something always interesting and enjoy all the lovely photos.

By Lee, MI. on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 08:11 am:

I was told by my mother years ago that the habit of putting the broom across the door was to stop the native Indians from going into the house.If you forgot to do that , they felt free to go in and help themselves to any food that you had.

By Frank,,,,,Milw...... on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 08:15 am:

Good Morning from Florida

By ben, little betsy on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 08:32 am:

chuck, what exactly do you mean by hitting the woods? are you actually thinking that one of us might actually see something other than a squirrel? if i actually saw a deer i think i would get a little buck fever and blast my own foot off trying to rack a shell into the chamber. and dont forget that grandpa is probably going to want to head into calumet atleast once for a whopper, maybe even a double!

By Uncle Bud/old Mohawk guy on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 08:41 am:

I remember the trail well, it came out on the South end of S Lake. There also was a trail from Mohawk (upper end) to Seneca Location, then down thru Seneca to the bush road to the lake. there was lots of sugar plum trees along the road(sometimes we would run into a bear enjoying them), we would eat(sugar plums that is) them all the way down to the lake, cross over the old road heading north,on another bush road to Boys Pool on the Gratiot River, There was a big revine some where on this road which was always fun to cross ( on bikes). there was also a girls pool near there and over to the east on another trail was a place called christian pool.
We would swim all day.
This was in the late 40's early 50's, a time of inocents and safety for kids.

By jim in Fort Wayne,Ind on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 08:45 am:

morning,just had a trip to the u.p. my wife and I were sad when we had to leave. in houghton how old is that steam engine across the river at the abandoned factory by the water is that Hancock?

By Bill, stuck in Illinois on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 09:04 am:

Wow, am I first???

By Andy, WI on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 09:09 am:

I'm first!!! Call Crabby Jack collect!!

By Alan, Kansas City, MO on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 09:12 am:

Looks like a lot of us are going to have a shot at "early bird"!

By MTU Alum, Texas on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 09:14 am:

MTU Alum / Youth Expo:

Yes !!! The youth expo was a great idea and will be a wonderful event. It's great to see the kids get involved in Engineering/Science/Technology/Etc. activities. I am always amazed and very pleased to see that MTU always returns to its true roots *EDUCATION* as the most important part of the college experience. I thank everyone who is volunteering, donating, and putting time into the Youth Expo!!!

By Marsy Burns Charlevoix, MI on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 11:13 am:

What a coincidence.......

It was just yesterday I was reminiscing with a cousin from Jacobsville about the broom across the door. Everybody in Jacobsville did that. We'd go to Aunt Minnie's and see the broom so we'd come back later........for "coffee and dipppings" of course. It could of had more meaning but I always thought it just meant she wasn't home.

Pasty.com is a great place. I found my third cousin here and that is great !!!

By Um... on Thursday, October 28, 2004 - 12:42 pm:

that "Janet from Ohio" isn't THIS Janet from Ohio, just for the record.
