Keweenaw penninsala

We met some airstream folks this weekend up in the UP of Michigan. Sorry you guys we didn't t get to have coffee Saturday morning. We got up and went to breakfast in town and headed out. It was a pleasure meeting y'all. Maybe next time we meet, you'll get to see our 325. What a great place to camp. It's not to busy, quiet, and they got a couple of good food places. We ll be back. For all you folks that have never up in the UP of Michigan, it is really pretty, good people. And the keweenaw penninsala is full of history. Lots of mining lore,and old sites one can visit. Pretty cool. Worth the trip. Did you know that Calumet,mi was once trying to be the capital of the state. And, they had about 130 thousand people living there? You never know it now. It s old and tired looking. Lots of old big houses. The stone work is really cool to see. They built houses to last back then. Anyway it's pretty cool . DJ

That is a beautiful area..... in the summer..... would not want to live there in the winter, though.

We picked up our 1987 Avion 34W just north of Hancock, MI. We were there in mid to late October, just before their first snow. I was really impressed with the beauty of the area. I check a web cam that focuses on a lift bridge across the waterway between Houghton and Hancock..... there are times in the winter that you cannot even SEE the bridge because it is snowing so hard!

The Keweenaw peninsula is on my bucket list. We have been to the eastern part of the UP 3 times in the last 5 years but we haven’t made it west of Marquette yet. Next summer for sure.

Here are a couple of photos from the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and a photo of the breakwater at Presque Isle Park in Marquette.
