Black River Harbor

Fall color usually begins each year in the extreme Western UP at the edge of Ottawa National Forest, and moves across to the east. Along Lake Superior's south shore you'll find Black River Harbor, which Pat & Glenda Keiran document in their album "Wandering the U.P.".

I just clicked over to the almost-live shot of the Lift Bridge in the Copper Country, and have to admit it still looks like August. Color has been slow in coming, compared to previous years which you can explore in the Pasty Cam archives.

What a great gallery of the Black River and Grand Marais. Some beautiful shots there.

I was just commenting on the lack of color to my work asociates a few minutes ago when I too checked out the bridge cam. Sure looks like a nice sunny day though.

Re: The Color
I'm noticing how slow the color is this year, too. Even out here in the East. It could be that we're all looking too anxiously for it, you know the old saying, "A watched pot...."? Or maybe someone can verify that the colors are actually taking longer. Hey! Sometimes it's nice to slow down and enjoy each layer of color as it comes.

I've noticed the last two times this map was used it does not include Ironwood...have you ever divulged the source of these maps.

Great picture...and I hope this isn't rude...but I have no where else to turn...whatever happened to Grandma Grooters by Bruce Crossings. My husband and I were anticipating our dinner for a whole week, we were vacationing in Minnesota and were very disappointed to recognize the landscape without a building!!

By Joe Finn, Rhinelander, Wi on Monday, October 6, 2003 - 12:06 pm:

Grandma Grooters burnt down, and unfortunaly do do not plan to rebuild.
How many people remember the bueatiful Ottawa Lodge, just west of Kenton, that met the same fate years ago?

I was wondering where you were. I hadn't seen any comments from you lately. Glad you are back from Florida AND I will scan those pics of your sister now that my printer/scanner is up and running again.

O.K. Sue,I will drop you a line but am still busy getting things back in order here. Isn't the water bu the bridge pretty today?

By Connie - Colorado on Monday, October 6, 2003 - 03:05 pm:

Orange leaves are dropping out of the trees here in Colorado even as I type this. Maybe it does work eastward!

Be sure we can all see these photos! We've been hearing about them and now we can't wait!

Either Alex or you should get your gallery started up!

That bever is probably looking for a wooden boat he can chew a hole in. They're a clever critter, but a pain in the butt.

Here's a shameless plug for my sister's father-in-law - The NOMAD, Capt. Dan McManman - is moored about 4 slips in from the left side of the screen. If you want a superb charter fishing trip, call Cap'n Dan.

By walter tampa on Monday, October 6, 2003 - 06:42 pm:

By J.T.,IA. on Monday, October 6, 2003 - 07:45 pm:

Well there's the Beaver...but, where's Wally,Ward. and June?

By Steven Racine Wi on Monday, October 6, 2003 - 08:52 pm:

And where is copper peak? I know Ironwood is still on the map that i have, but where? I spent alot of time there when i was young. Nice place to be.

By Steve the idiot troll a long time ago on Monday, October 6, 2003 - 11:06 pm:

Hurley is an interesting little place. Da Toots used to drive to Hurley to drink da beer, drive home probably under the influence, and hopefully make it in one piece. Ask yer downstate deerhunters from the 60's and 70's about Hurley and they will tell you a slightly different tale of what they were "hunting.". Did one trip to Hurley and never ever went back. Actually ended up helping fellow "Toots" wrecked and bleeding on the way home. A memorable little town too tough to die.

We're heading NORTH tomorrow... a little R and R and some Island hopping! It looks like we might even have lovely weather... and a bit of color! Yes, beloved U.P. here we come!

By Alan, Missouri on Tuesday, October 7, 2003 - 08:08 am:

Hey, Charlie, or someone up there. Would it be possible to create a small slide show of the same section of forest over the next few weeks? That way we could see the colors change in the same piece of woods? I'd do it myself, but I'm 900 miles away. Just a suggestion

By Billy Bob, AK on Wednesday, October 8, 2003 - 12:45 pm:

so are beavers good to eat?

By Connie - Colorado on Wednesday, October 8, 2003 - 02:53 pm:

My grandmother, Laura Archambeau (GRHS) cooked beaver and a bunch of my family members ate it. They seemed to like it. As kids, we didn't eat it because they didn't force us to.

Was your grandmother, Laura Archambeau, the cook for the Phi Tau Fraternity in Hancock?
