There are so many things to be thankful for today, but since we're all about showing off the beauty of the Upper Peninsula here on the Pasty Cam, we're showing our appreciation of the U.P. with some photos from one of the best, Steve Brimm. He was up at Lake Manganese, in Copper Harbor, to watch the sun go down and snapped these beauties to share. If the snow on the rocks, the picnic table and the beach, aren't enough to tell you that summer is over, perhaps the thin layer of ice on the lake will convince you that, (as Steve so aptly put it...) 'the summer swimmin' hole is closed.' Always a good place for a swim, a picnic or some kayaking, this small lake is a gem to be thankful for.

So, during this busy day of turkey and dressing, join us in taking some time to stop and quietly give thanks for all the blessings in our lives.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Together, we feel Your presence and power in us and though us.
We give thanks for this community of prayerful, thoughtful people who gather together in a consciousness of love each day.
We are thankful for Your spirit, which is the life we share.
We are thankful for the Earth and the food that grows abundantly.

We take this opportunity to reflect on our blessings and we commit ourselves to being the people You created us to be.

Happy Thanksgiving! And, yes, Lake Manganese is a magical,
beautiful, soul inspiring piece of the world that I am very thankful

Beautiful pictures! I've sat at that picnic table during summer visits
to C.H. It is a treat to see the lake in its winter garb.

Happy Thanksgiving to one & all in pastyland. I hope everyone had a great day. I'm thinking alot of a family who I have known for many years. This man is a great kind & gentle man who means alot to my family & his days or hours on earth are very few now. I'm praying that the Lord takes you into his kingdom with him & you see his face so clearly & go with him in peace. You are were loved by many friends.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos. I'm a Keweenaw girl at heart, although I left Copper Harbor almost 30 years ago..... back "home" every summer!
