After some blustery days last week, the last couple have been without a breeze overnight, which allowed some thick frost to blanket the woods. Roger Kangas caught this scene just as the streaks of sunrise hit the treetops, before the frost would burn away.

Edie and I had a pleasant ride up to the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge last night, for the annual Lion's banquet. We could not recall seeing this much green this late in the season. Perhaps Jack Frost will kick start the colors yet. Hurry home, Toivo, or you'll miss it.

What a great picture. Take a deep breath and you can almost taste that cold, fresh air.

You could turn this picture over and hardly be able to tell which is water and which is sky.

After looking at the MTU ViewCam, it looks as if the trees have just as much color here in Ypsilanti as they do in Houghton. I'm not sure if it's early for us here, because last year the leaves never did change color. It was such a warm fall that they finally just turned brown in November and finally fell off the trees.

Excellent article in today's Detroit Free Press regarding mining in the U.P. Go to http://www.freep.com/news/mich/mining7_20031007.htm

Just wondering if Roger Kangas is related to Jake and Marie Kangas who used have a summer home on Pardee Lake near Winchester, WI.

By L. Kangas on Tuesday, October 7, 2003 - 04:21 pm:

No Peg, Roger isn't related to Jack and Marie.
Roger took this picture on his way to work yesterday. We had several frosty mornings, and then summerlike sunshine today!

Good call Mr. Mike B. Pittsburgh - it is a perfect mirror image.

Where about was this taken? Love the fir trees - they call me to make a trek above the bridge. Perhaps on the way to work one day I will just keep driving...

As far as I could see, there is no charge for this collections of Great Lakes Lighthouse Screen Savers. I saw them and had to share it with everyone here.

The Scenic Reflections screen saver does encourage donations. See the left side of their page toward the bottom.

Great pic! I love this time of year. Crisp mornings, warm sun, cool air....the SMELL is so incredible. Just walked through the woods...Oh we are SOOOOOO blessed to be here! Nothing like it....

Could be a dandy winter tho...with what folks are saying!! The natural bounty has outdone itself this year, berries and apples, etc. And I just heard that depending on how high the wasps build their nests, will determine the ferocity of winter. I guess the higher the nest the harder the winter, and the loggers/foresters are saying the nests were high this year. Which brings me to a question...what happens to the bees and wasps for the winter? Thanks Pasty Land!

We just arrived home from the Houghton-Hancock area today. Had some nasty weather over the weekend and then it turns nice when we had to leave. Color was great in some places; lots of green in other places yet. But it's always great to be back in the Keweenaw anytime.

By Roger Kangas on Tuesday, October 7, 2003 - 10:03 pm:

The picture shown today was taken from the Electric Park Rd, (N. of Boston Location) just off 41. Thanks to all for the compliments, and thanks to Pasty Central for allowing us to share our photos. Color season is really starting to come on quick after a seemingly slow start. My guess is that the colors are going to be the best by the weekend and early next week.

My secretary is going to Finland next summer and she is wondering if anyone out there knows anyone from Terjärv (Högnabba) or Kronoby? As she says, her "morfar's" name was Jakobsson Björk.

Toivo: if you are still there down under or anyone else is interested check out this link on Australia. NEAT! http://users.bigpond.net.au/sunset On the list at the left see "Sanctuary In the Snow" and "A Land Down Under" to see the big rock!

This sure lloks like a place that I've fished on the lower reaches of the Montreal Meadows just outside Delaware. Is that right?

By fy on Thursday, October 9, 2003 - 01:03 pm:

Dover Creek, just outside of Calumet (southwest side)

By fy on Thursday, October 9, 2003 - 01:13 pm:

Also, I believe this flows to Hungarian Falls, so some people might refer to this as Hungarian Creek.
