I was in the UP last weekend to breath some fresh air and visit with relatives in the Bruce Crossing/Ewen area. A stop at Paulding for some hand-dipped ice cream, and Bond Falls for some eye candy, were needed to make the trip complete. I walked down to the falls and found a view that had to be preserved. My camera was still in the car! No problem......it was a good excuse to get some needed exercise and to stay a bit longer.

I've noticed most photos are of the more dramatic west side, so I thought the east side should get equal time!

By the way..... I'm the son of Bashful Joe, a UP entertainer who some of you "old timers" may remember. I've been thinking of producing a "Best of Joe" CD. Would anyone be interested? Any feedback would be appreciated.

"Bashful Joe" was a little before my time, but shots like this are timeless.

Just one more word: WOW!

Speaking of WOW's... We have something different for last week's wallpaper... It was sooo hard to choose among the shots which appeared each day, we decided instead just to bring a classic Steve Brimm shot of Eagle Harbor Lighthouse against a blazing sunset. Steve has provided it for us in the current Wallpaper of the Week.

WOW !!

Great shot of the falls, Ron. As for releasing the CD, I say go for it. I'm sure some younger folks(myself included) would like to hear some of the older music that really started it all.

No interest in Bashful Joe whatsoever.

Hey Ron-great soothing picture. Make sure I get a copy of your dad's music if you put something together.

After a long, stressful day, this picture was exactly what I needed. Thank you!

Very cool picture of Bond Falls. And the picture of the sun setting behind that lighthouse was braethtaking. Thanks for some really cool pics!

Whoops, I spelled ''breathtaking'' wrong. Sorry about that!

Bond Falls looks like a great place to stop for a little break on my way to Houghton. How do I get there from Bruce Crossing?

By Ron Syria, Utica,MI on Friday, August 2, 2002 - 04:04 am:

Uncle Glen,

Bond Falls is a great place to take a break. They have picnic tables and a small curio shop there as well. It's just a beautiful place. The size of the falls may surprise you. It looks a lot smaller in a photo than it really is.

Go south on Highway 45(the only one going south from Bruce Crossing) to Paulding. I'm guessing that it's about 10 miles. You will see a gas station/party store on your left. Take the east-bound road that runs into 45 at the store. In a few minutes, you will come to a dam. Park your vehicle and just follow the signs.

If you are traveling north on 45 from US 2, Paulding is about half way between Watersmeet(the intersection of US 2 and 45)and Bruce Crossing (the intersection of M28 and 45). So, if you're heading North towards Ontonagon it isn't too many minutes out of your way.
