Ice still in Chequamegon Bay. And the Ore Dock is slowly being torn down.

Click on each photo for a larger version.

Panoramic photo of Chequamegon Bay taken 05/01/13 from the overlook just west of Chequamegon Hotel on the north side of US Highway 2.  The far left of the photo is looking toward the west-southwest (the head of the bay). The far right of the photo is looking east-southeast toward Ashland Ore Dock undergoing demolition. The center of the photo is looking west-northwest toward Washburn WI.

This photo was taken today from the same spot as the panoramic view above was taken. This is the current state of demolition of the ore dock. Note the distance from shore and the backhoes near the southern (shore) end.

The very sad passing of a friend. R.I.P. my friend.

Rest in Peace my friend. 
Dan C. April 15, 1959 to February 27, 2013

Dan and family at recent much happier times.

Update: March 5, 2013 saying goodbye to Dan.
Today (03/05/2013) we went to Dan's funeral. 
The first hymn The Old Rugged Cross  has life long meaning to me. It was my grandmother's favorite hymn and in my minds eye was this cross at the top of this hill at the camp I went to starting at age seven.

Sunday afternoon at Mt. Ashwabay. Ski racing and visiting with old friends.

Scott headed up for another run.

The years pass but Kathy never seems to get any older. She can still beat almost everyone else on the hill when it come to Sunday racing.

Tim can still turn in a great time. This run 27:29 sec.

Scott enjoying the day.

Coach Kathy and one of her team members.

Scott and Mike headed up the hill.

Tim and Bob.

The sun tried to breakout in the late afternoon.  I set out today to take some outdoor picture. Outdoor sunny picture. I'm glad I had a "high speed" camera because the sun did not hang around for long. Still turned out to be a fun day.

The moon sure put on a great show at the end of the day.
