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.
