Toivo, in the show-me state on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 12:23 am:

As I been seein the sights across the U.S., I'm reminded that some of the best are waiting for me right back home in the good ole U.P. Tonight the photo inbox snagged this message:

Just thought I would pass these to you. I shot them Friday and Saturday at Hungarian falls in Tamarack City. With the warm temperatures the water really is flowing. Still quite a lot of snow in the woods and on the banks of the river which made for some interesting climbing. I really enjoy your site. Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Sean, and welcome to the growing army of Pasty Camists. Looks like a WOW to me.

Over the weekend I sailed the old beater like a prairie schooner through Kansas and on to Missouri. Do you know, I never realized before that the Kansas City Royals are not from Kansas?? Did you hear - - they are off to an season-opening winning streak of nine games, the best start of any team in 13 years. They finally fell to Cleveland on Sunday.
Good night from Missouri and good morning from da U.P. trip notes mo

Uh-Oh! I just looked at Toivo's trip notes... Looks like Georgia isn't on the shopping list! Maybe if I start to pout a little bit, he'll twist that line toward me! :(

Which river is this and where is the stream as it comes down and enters Torch Lake. Is it the stream between 3rd and 5th St on Maple St in Tamarack City? Thanks....

Good job Sean Tobacsko on your contributions to the Pasty Cam. I vote WOW to the first one especially.

By Marc, dry dock, Tampa/Tamarack City on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 08:35 am:

It sure is that little stream. I live on Third and can't wait to get back home to see the falls!!!!

By Sean Tabacsko, Houghton on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 08:51 am:

Those are on the Hungarian Creek. The First picture is the lower falls that are more impressive than any of the the other sets on the creek. The falls are located just off the road that connects Tamarack to golf course road. From M-26 north turn left on sixth street in Tamarack and this time of the year park and walk up the road (cause of all the snow still left) to the gate and follow the creek up ways to the falls. In the summer and fall it is possible to drive quite a bit closer but the falls are not nearly as impressive without the current runoff.

A definite WOW for the first picture. How about a picture of Jacob Falls at this time of the year? Keep up the good work and welcome aboard as a Pasty Camist.

By Becky,Lansing/Tamarack City on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 09:57 am:

Hey Marc- we're neighbors! We live on Maple!!!We can't wait to get back there either.

Those mountains in the distance are half way to Marquette. Almost in a straight line too.

Charlie, Toivo,

I don't know if you know it but the picture of Jack Nordine's Lincoln plow from Saturday, April 12th is linked to Taka's fantastic night shots from Thursday, April 10th. I just logged on and wanted to find out what I missed over the weekend. Let me know if I am doing something wrong.



By Taka @ MTU on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 11:19 am:

Nice shot! I'm going back to Hungarian skipping the classes.

By rose, mn on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 11:38 am:

taka--you mean you actually go to class sometimes? haha

By Taka @ MTU on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 11:43 am:

yeah. i go there to take a nap.

By Marc, Only 2 more days and I'm home!! on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 01:07 pm:

Nice to meet you, neighbor :) I've been gone for 6 weeks, but I'll be home Wednesday. Can't wait!! Going to check out the falls Thursday morning. Hope they're still rushing like Sean's photo...

just last night i was dreaming of waterfalls... walking up a river straight into one...

By Steve, Il. on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 04:45 pm:

Sean Tabacsko, thanks for fulfilling my request from Friday 4/11 for a picture of Hungarian Falls during spring snowmelt. Your shot surely is a WOW!Too bad Douglass Houghton Falls are off limits eh? Does anyone know of a way to approach Douglass Houghton Falls from downstream/below? The Keweenaw is truly remarkable. I wish I could spend more time than just a week in the fall.

By me on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 06:05 pm:

Yep I do, but it's a secret. Maybe I'll scan some pictures.

By Jim, Twin Cities on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 06:47 pm:

I just thought that you might like to know, that Jokkmokk Sweden, right on the Arctic Circle, has just about as much snow remaining as I see on the Bridge Cam. But they only reached 50 degrees today. A few days ago, they didn't have as much snow.

By Big John/Big Traverse Bay on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 07:15 pm:

If you want a map to the falls take my wifes advice and go to this site:

This is the best time of the year to run these rapids.

By Ryan - MTU on Monday, April 14, 2003 - 11:29 pm:

If you are in the Houghton area check out the Tech Arts Festival (TAF). Many people have submitted photos into a competition. This week from 10am - 2pm in the Student Union Building photos, paintings, and drawings will be on display. Congratulations to Taka, who took 1st, and 2nd place with two of his submitted photos.

By Holly, MI on Thursday, April 24, 2003 - 07:33 pm:

Hey Great pictures Sean. Love them. Keep them coming if you have any more spare time. :)

By Weldon Dube' Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, May 25, 2003 - 04:28 pm:

This is great to see pictures of the U.P. where we were born and raised. Brings back many good memories. Thanks for all the great pictures. We like to remember when we lived there and it will always be home to us. I left there in 1946 to join the Army Air Corp and enjoy my visits to the U.P.
