While new features are being added and the site continues to grow, you can easily find the section you want in the list below. On every feature's page, there is a Flash interface for finding the features. This site map provides a more traditional method of finding a feature.
Fishing in the Ice: I knew when we started this website that ice fishing would have to be featured. Although I was reluctant because I also knew that the ice fishing experience would not transfer well to video. I suppose that goes for any fishing experience. Unless you are in a tournament, the main point is to let life slow down for a couple of hours. The point isn't catching a fish.
Paintball Warriors at Splat-U-Later: In regards to paintball, I probably should have started at a beginner's level. Some would argue that combating against teenagers is a beginner's level...however the average person would agree with me in saying that age is no factor in paintball.
In the Wild at the DeYoung Family Zoo: I know some people don't like seeing animals in cages. My own statistic is that 99% of animals in zoos are so well taken care of to the point that they're pampered, and yes, perhaps even loved. Which is the case at the DeYoung Family Zoo.
Building a Snow Sculpture: Winter Carnival at Michigan Tech is one of the biggest festivals in the Upper Peninsula. Up until recently, snow sculpting in Houghton was a student activity. For the past few years, there has been interest in the community to partake in the icy construction. This page includes a 16 minute video and 75 photos of the construction process.
Kitch-iti-kipi: Known as Big Springs, Kitch-iti-kipi is Michigan's largest spring. Over 16,000 gallons a minute erupt from the limestone bottom 40 feet beneath the surface where giant trout rest. This spring is constant all year and keeps the surrounding water at 45 degrees. This page has a few nice photos and a 5 minute video.
