Some day I have to join Joyce Tormala on her adventures in Keweenawland. She always seems to know where to find the most unique and scenic places and portrays the calm and peacefulness in her photos too. This staircase, bordered by the changing leaves is purely magical. You get a feeling of anticipation as to what you'll see once you set foot in the sand and the Lake Superior expanse of beach stretches out before you. Even the driftwood at the bottom of the stairs seems strategically placed t, though you know it wasn't... magical indeed!

And the return trip will take your breath away :o)

My eyes feel good, but my knees hurt looking at this picture!

Remembering my Mother, Dolores Paquette, on her birthday. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and miss you.

Happy Birthday Mom !

Good Morning. Beautiful photo.

The driftwood seems to beckon you to walk along the shore. Does
anyone know where this picture was taken exactly?

Paul,my knees hurt, too, but I'm pretty sure the trip back up would be worth it. I wish I was there right now.

Great Picture Joyce, as always you have a knack for taking pictures of spots that need some attention.

Looks like it is near Agate Beach but I don't know who's camp it is.

Reminds me of my Grandmas friends place between Houghton and Ontonagon, she had a steep set of steps to the beach. Was worth the walk down, then we would swim in the lake. Nothing like body surfing in Lake Superior.

This picture, I assume, was taken at a camp at Agate Beach. My family camp is two down from here! It's a beautiful place and as always, thanks for sharing Joyce!

My Mother and her sisters have a camp at Agate beach, the Niemela camp. I remember the long stairs down to the beach.

As usual, another most beautiful picture from Pasty Central. I send these pictures daily to friends I know all over the country and they cannot believe how beautiful our U.P. is and what a fantastic job Pasty Central does with photographing the area. Know you are "brightening" many a life by sharing these wonderful photos from all.

Thank you!

One of the stairways at the Calumet Waterworks park?

Wish I was there right NOW!

Just been thinking of my Mom and Dad, too. Mom's birthday would have been Sept. 17, she died on Oct. 7,'73. Dad's birthday was May 18, he died on Oct. 22,'97. Also, Larry Kananen, grew up in Hubbell, passed away in Concord, NH this week. We were classmates at LLHS in the early 50s.
