Keweenaw Peninsula

16 Sep

Last week, I went up to the Keweenaw Peninsula for a vacation.  It was fun, beautiful, and very relaxing.  We had a lakefront cottage we stayed in that was wonderful, and the view of Lake Superior was excellent.  We sat out there for hours while there, just watching the water crash on the shore.  The shoreline was a red rocky beach and even though it’s September, we wandered down into the water some.  The water was surprisingly comfortable to be in even thought it was sweatshirt weather.  The natural beauty up in that peninsula was breathtaking.  There were waterfalls, thick, dense forest, and of course, beautiful views of the grand lake.  Lake Superior is one of the most beautiful places I know.

One of the best parts of the vacation was the covered canopy drive, where the trees closed over the road completely so it was a lush, green shelter.  It was rainy when we drove through there, and I am glad for that because it seemed to make the greens brighter and the bark and ground blacker.  It was beyond description how beautiful it was, so I might as well share some photos now.  I hope you enjoy.

        No problem at all! By the way Jenny, you can call me Bree ( I just changed my username to Living Beyoutofully to reflect one of my newest blogs here on WordPress : )

        Well hi, Bree. I thought the avatar picture looked like yours, but thought it must have been a coincidence. Your new blog is really nicely designed and I like the positive messages you share, especially the one about outfits being too tight, short and small. For the record, you can call me Jenna (or Jen if you’d like). Jenna’s my full name rather than Jenny or Jennifer. 🙂 Thanks again for the comments. Have a great day!

      It was indeed a beautiful place to visit, Jocelyne. Lake Superior is amazing! Have you seen it? You would love it! Thank you! It means so much to hear you like my photos. I took over 800 photos on the trip, so only a fraction of them ended up here. I appreciate you kind comments so much! Thank you. 🙂
