E. Neil Harri said he was just "passing by" when he spotted the commercial fishing vessel, Dawn heading out of south Portage Entry amongst a few rather large ice chunks still to be found floating in Lake Superior. Neil pointed out that the boat actually seems to be dragging the reflection of the lighthouse through the water. Do you see it? Pretty neat...

With Neil's second picture, before you get all excited that the Eagle River Falls is really high and gushing water like this, let me tell you that Neil actually took this photo back on 4/30/99 and in sending it to me, he remarked that the water won't be high like this for our Spring meltdown this year, unless we get lots of rain. Neil's picture reminded me of the animated shot of the falls, from the archives. Too bad we don't have sound included. :->

what a rush

I would LOVE to see those Falls like that, just once. It's not bad when we see it in June, but by August, there's a little trickle flowing down, lol.

Thanks for the great picture!!

Wow...FABULOUS pictures! And holy wha man....when I saw the falls...I was ready to hop in the buggy and take a spin north! :D

Good Morning! Neil, I love your bird's eye views, and your view of Eagle River Falls is amazing! I haven't seen them so "angry" before!

Yesterday, Mary was talking about the falls in my son's pictures from a week ago, and she thought they would be different now. Well, I do have a direct comparison, that she told me to go ahead and put up this morning, since she is out of town for a few days. What an incredible difference just 7 days makes, in the Eagle River Falls. I didn't send her the one from a week ago because I thought it was boring, but it is very interesting as a comparison to Saturday, April 9, 2011!

Eagle River Falls - 4/2/11
Eagle River Falls - 4/9/11

Thank you, Mary, for setting it up for me yesterday! It is really hard to believe those two photos were taken just 7 days apart. And, it's no surprise that the Trap Rock River has flood warnings near Lake Linden!

All good photos, and the action photo is neato.

The falls picture was taken on 4/30/2009. It was running pretty good this morning on way to work.

Here's another from our honeymoon--April 13, 1960!

We can hear the falls roaring tonight, from over here in the western suburbs of Eagle River. Thanks Neil, Marrianne, and Russ for sharing these pictures. We walked past the falls yesterday and said, "there's a Pasty Cam shot".

Russell, Happy Anniversary Wishes to you and your wife! The Honeymoon is still going yet today I bet.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 05:47 am:

Happy Anniversary, Russell. Just noticed the date on your photo.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 06:29 am:

Happy Anniversary, Russell. I hope you have many more happy years together! (I should remember your anniversary, because it's my birthday, too.)

The pair of Eagle River Falls photos above were taken by my son, Jonny Young, a student at Michigan Tech seven days apart.
