Pictures from Week 7!

We did get some school work done this past week (more on that in another post), but we took a trip up the Keweenaw Peninsula, in the UP of Michigan, and here are some of our pictures from that pretty fall trip:

Cliffs containing some of the first copper mined in the peninsula.

Eagle River Falls (we're not sure why they have the middle section of this dammed....)  Oh, figured it out:

Eagle Harbor Lighthouse in the rain.

Superior with a big fall storm moving in....

Laurium Manor Inn (B&B) - 13,000 square feet of unique and interesting history with wonderful art neuvo interiors....

Rock climbing!

The beginning of color in the inland valleys.

Mountain climbing to get four bars....

Tumultuous waves coming in the day after the storm, which had 60 mph winds.

Dapple Gray Inn (B&B), where we stayed in Copper Harbor (fabulous antiques!)

Copper Harbor Lighthouse - sorta blurred because the swells were still pretty significant trying to get out there on Saturday, after Thursday's storm....

We had fun, even though the guys didn't get to do a Friday fishing trip they had hoped for.  I hope we can go back in summer some time so that we can go out to Isle Royale.
