Long before computers and websites, a log was just a log and login meant you'd be getting warm near the fire! This log is located at High Rock Point, east of Copper Harbor. Richard Barclay's gallery takes us where many folks have logged in and left their marks. I wonder if there's a pen chained there, like at the bank, so people can't borrow it?!

Reminds me, better get busy on the woodpile.

I like this one! I'm getting a crick in my neck trying to read all the names. Looks like beginning entry 11/27/02...and then a rough winter to the next entry of 5/21/03....or does someone have better eyes than me? (Hi Ruth!)

Looks as "well used" as the sign that was posted at the trailhead to the Estivant Pines. I remember passing through the Estivants and then crossing the Montreal on a log to get to the Leaning Giant. Ah,.. to be hiking in the Keweenaw today!

Northern Lights Alert:

You northern folk maybe in for a good display over the next couple of days.

Speaking of the bank....this log is at drive thru height...so you just drive by on the way to High Rock and sign the log ledger! Sorry, bring your own pen. I've signed it annually, but as you can see a "new log" is started occasionally by sawing a slice off to expose the "next page of the ledger". Maybe if a person is collecting them, he/she could take a picture of the collection and display them all. It could make a neat display somewhere...

This road is on the way to Schlatter Lake, right?

By Leslie on Friday, October 24, 2003 - 12:47 pm:

I like this log. It certainly would be neat to see all of them, if there is a collection. I wonder how far back they go? And thanks for the link to the solar activity info. I wonder if that explains why I can't get into my Yahoo email account?

By Curious on Friday, October 24, 2003 - 01:33 pm:

Yeah, it looks like Scott and Jeff may be able to provide the first clue to learning what happened to the old log ledgers.
(Maybe it's an End Table!)

Went by here on Aug.6,03 and yup signed in.
We were on our way back from High Rock Bay
and honest truth just leaned out the drivers
window to sign in. Had been geocaching the
Rocket Ranger cache with a fellow and his
sister who just might read this and post the
latitude and longitude of the log log for all to

Someone took a chainsaw and cut two faces on the log just down from the end and there are signatures on the new faces now. Cutting off the tip would lose the new signatures, I don't believe that the tip has been cut off, yet! Saw that on the last trip to the missle site in early Oct.

By Becky, Lansing/Tamarack City on Friday, October 24, 2003 - 03:18 pm:

THAT's where I've seen this pic before. I looked at some article or pics about the missle site. I thought I was losing it(big time)

Hey, its getting toward Halloween! Lets hear some scarry ghost stories already....or some cool spooky looking houses up yonder!

By Victor P., Houston Tx on Friday, October 24, 2003 - 05:59 pm:

Hey I think every forest should have a sign in sheet er...log. Somebody say hi to Marianne & Will Andresen in Ironwood if you should see/know them.

Did a similar idea with a "sauna log" back in the 70's, when my Dad built a new sauna. Only took a few cut of logs from the woodpile before we had a perfect 'slab', so first time bathers could "log in".

Halloween or not - you wouldn't want to spend
the night in the old lightkeepers house in
Eagle Harbor!

It sure was a surprise to see this picture on the web. I made the trip to High Rock Bay on 07/03/03. I can see where my grandchildren signed the log. This picture brings back special memories of a special day. (I should send you a picture of my son-in-law's suburban covered with red mud.)

Doesn't look like any Aurora Borealis from down here in Cornell tonight. Drizzley rain and clouds. How far is it from the cul-de-sac on US41 to High Rock Point/Bay? Pssst! Ken from da UP had a birthday today. The big 64.

By Lisa, farfrom home in TN on Saturday, October 25, 2003 - 02:17 am:

Think the litehouse is scary try the Calumet Theater /shiver.
Happy Birthday Ken!
See you all soon we leave tomorrow to come back home and looks like we will be bringing the snow with us on Tuesday ( sorry bout that )
Take care all.

By danbury; germany on Sunday, October 26, 2003 - 01:28 pm:

Happy birthday Ken.
Now, what about the lighthouse and the theater?

By Troll, MI on Monday, October 27, 2003 - 10:41 am:

danbury, germany:
Both are very haunted.....maybe someone up in pastyland can elaborate more on this.

By Connie - Colorado on Tuesday, October 28, 2003 - 11:16 pm:

Ken, you don't look a day over 40. I thought you were my age! Congratulations and Happy Birthday!
