Big wet snow flakes obcure a stunted oak on Brockway Mountain Drive last night in the Keweenaw’s first heavy snow near Copper Harbor. There was 3 inches or more that fell in places, and the wind at times gave things a sort of blizzard feel on the mountain.

Brockway Mountain lookout gives a glimpse of Copper Harbor last night night during heavy snow flakes falling.

Lake Superior often gets wild and sprays the shoreline. When conditions are just so, icicles can form along the shore flora and conglomerate.

The work of a Pileated Woodpecker

The work of a Pileated Woodpecker

The Pileated woodpecker is a local, year round resident here in Copper Harbor. It is the largest North American woodpecker (besides the Ivory Billed, thought to be extinct) about the size of a crow. Their holes are unique in that they have squared off edges and rectangular holes rather than round, and of course, they are also very large.
This is some current work from a local woodpecker – The photo of the bird is not current, but is posted to show what the culprit looks like. It was taken here in Copper Harbor.
