How many times I have driven US-41 from Eagle River to Calumet in blinding snow... realizing there is something up ahead. Feeling that the snow is suddenly a thicker cloud, you strain to make out any tail lights in front of you. Then you emerge into a clearing through the wall of white as the road commission truck becomes visible.

This stretch of highway is a favorite of Jonathan's, with the rising cliffs ahead, just south of Phoenix. One of my personal all-time favorite shots on the Pasty Cam was a view he captured a couple of years ago, from the other direction.

I agree with you Charlie. This is one of the best shots that has been posted since the beginning. Even though I live here I still enjoy seeing the pictures from around the area. It gives another perspective on what goes on up here. It also shows me the places that I haven't seen (yet). Keep 'em comin'!

I wish for you all a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year. Be careful driving, Jon. The stuff is unbelievably beautiful but can be dangerous.
Thank you, pasty cam, for one of the joys of my mornings.

May everyone have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New year. Thanks to all the camists for providing us with great pictures everyday.

The cutoff road between Mohawk and Phoenix is also my favorite. How different it looks in the winter, but still just as pretty as the fall when we are up.
