...Sailors take warning.

Here we've been looking for color in the trees (just about reached the peak here in the U.P.) and some of the most magnificent color is above the treetops. Thanks R.C. for distilling some of it for the Pasty Cam.

Speaking of sailors... Al Kempke recently sent this shot, taken between Dollar Bay and Chassell.

From Brazil to the U.P.
Exchange student Arthur from Brazil at the tiller of the BSA Seascouts' sailboat, clipping along at about 7 knots. The other guys (l-r: Jon, Andy and Chris) are members of the Michigan Tech Eagle Scouts Association. Al is advisor of the local club, which supports the Rotary Youth Exchange program, contributing to world peace and understanding.

Awesome picture! Nobody paints it better than the "Man" himself. A prime example of why it is referred to as "God's Country" up here in the Upper Peninsula.

Hei, Lee, Talk about a 'kaunis kokko!' Voi kauhea and WOW! If you sleep too late UP here, you'd miss it. Just beautimous, RCW! Ja kiitos, kiitos, Charlie!

okay you finnish speaking people, will you translate for those of us who grew up with the spoken language, but never received translation to know how to speak or read for our own understanding. More directly, what does "kaunis kokko" mean? I know kiitos and voi kauhea, but not the first. Thanks whoever answers.

By ILMHitCC on Wednesday, October 16, 2002 - 03:59 am:

'kokko' means bonfire, 'kaunis' means beautiful or fine. So, Ken said, "Talk about a beautiful bonfire!" Sort of in Finnglish, you might say.

By Ken from da UP on Wednesday, October 16, 2002 - 11:15 pm:

Hei, tmi, Not only that, 'ja kiitos, kiitos' translates to "and Thank You, Thank You, Charlie."
