Grandma visits the Harbor    ...scroll down to share comments

Karen Karl's Grandma Lucile explored the rocks in Eagle Harbor on a day like today in the 1920's. Unusually warm for opening weekend of deer season.

Back in August, Karen had a golden shot from Brockway on the Pasty Cam, which was often appeared in nominations for the 2004 Calendar. As it turned out, the size of the picture was just right to wrap-around as the front and back cover. The calendar will soon be available on the holiday pasty shipping schedule, or to order individually.

Another fun addition to this year's gift pasty package is a new CD of the original "Heikki Lunta's Snow Dance Song". More details coming this week!

Here's a plug for a book that just came out: _Season's Revenge_ by Henry Kisor. A murder mystery novel set in Ontonagon, lots of places are easily recognizable. (So far--I haven't finished it yet.)

And a bonus for me. He says in the linked interview that one of the characters was inspired by my mother, Ruth Ristola. Inspiration only, as my mom was never a stunning redhead with gorgeous green eyes!

Seeing the lighthouse raises a question.

Can you drive out to the Copper Harbor lighthouse
or is that private closed road?

I'd like to go out there sometime and look for the
green copper vein that was famous in the early
days: "Roche Verde" I think it was called. I wonder
if any of it still can be seen beneath the waters of
the lake?

By ILMHitCC on Sunday, November 16, 2003 - 07:31 pm:

Sorry, Herb, you cannot drive out to the lighthouse. The road is private, and there is a locked gate preventing access that way to the lighthouse, as the lighthouse property itself is State Park property. In the summertime, you can take the ferry boat that runs each hour during the day to and from the lighthouse from the Copper Harbor Marina, weather permitting. Check out Copper Harbor Lighthouse Tours. Well worth the trip, and a nice boat ride to boot!

I goofed on the Pasty calendar information I posted on Nov. 12th.....Here's the correct info.

The current Yooper Calendar on the pasty order form is the traditional U.P. humor calendar, published by VSI in the Copper Country. Our color picture 2004 Pasty Cam calendar will be available after Thanksgiving.

Sorry for the confusion folks!

Need a copy of the snow dance song....been searching for one for years.
Hopefully, we'll be able to buy that alone, along with a calender.
I'll be "Staying Tuned" for more info

Hi, Catherine of Holland. I'm Lyndelle Brower of Holland. Do we know one another? Currently, I'm living near Washington, D.C. The other day when it was so windy here, I kept thinking, "If I were back home, I'd be at Ottawa Beach right now watching the waves crash over the pier.

By Emily, Lansing MI on Monday, November 17, 2003 - 12:37 pm:

Herb: The copper veins out under the waves are plenty beautiful and very visable. It makes for a lovely photo when the light is right.

Catherine (and Steve), your Mom'd be proud to be part of that book--"the brains of the outfit"!

His description of her was right-on. I miss her...
