    We have spent the last 4 days in Houghton, Michigan. This area is known for copper mines and there are several that you can tour. We had to cross the Mackinaw Bridge to get here.

    The Keweenaw peninsula juts out from Upper Michigan into Lake Superior. On the way we passed through Hancock-Houghton which looked really interesting, worthy of much more than a pass through. There was a Finnish College there and a big river/canal going from one side of the peninsula (island?) to the other. It seemed to be old, with some history to it. Tonight ...
