I didn't dig out my slide box of historical scenes of Houghton and the Copper Country
when there were stills rails on the ties (but no trains) in the 1980's.
But I do have the special paint Athearn boxcar COPR 4012 for the Copper Range RR.
I spent a few days in the last century exploring Copper Country.
I do aerial photography from a kite,
and know it takes time and sometimes luck to get the views I expect.
But today it's not my pictures that I want to show.
I haven't been back to the UP (Upper Peninsula, NOT Union Pacific), but it sure is good to see the work of other people in that area.
Kite aerial work can take a minumum of 1/2 hour per location, and the weather and sunshine might not be perfect.
So I really appreciate it when other aerial photographers make the effort and then share their results.
Please see these Flickr pictures from 2013 of the Portage Lake and Houghton and the Keweenaw National Historic Park

Here's links to some of my favorite Individual pictures, and from one of them you could get into his sets:
Enjoy. Watch his page for more pictures added after this date. I'm hope there's still more to be seen.
