    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. When you are in a car going over a bridge, the railing is at eye level. When you are in a motorhome, you never see the railing! As we were approaching the bridge the warning sign was flashing for trucks and motorhomes. We could only go 20 ...

    Well, we've been in the Upper Peninsula, in a city called Houghton (Ho-ton) for the past three nights (including tonight). We arrived from Wausau on Thursday. The trip up was really pleasant.

It did not ...

    ... beaqring rocks in the refuse heap of an abandoned copper mine. A pretty unique experience and we can't wait to see what they find when they cut the rocks open in their studio. The sunset and the final rays of golden sunshine made some of the pine branches glow like burnished copper - truly magical.

    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 ...
