a trip to the end of the earth

 we took a road trip today, considering a move to the Houghton or Hancock areas
 found a really cute shop in Copper Harbor that made suncatchers with slices of agate. and i love mermaids!


Copper Harbor
 a little yooper humor 
 here is a measure of snow fall in the area. the very top is where the record snow fall was in the winter of 1978-1979 - it was 390.4 inches. that is more than 63 feet!!!  last year they got just over 18 feet!



 this is the bridge between Houghton and Hancock. it lifts straight up rather than lifting one end at an angle. it was very cool to cross it.

  1. Went on our honeymoon to the Upper Peninsula in July 1991, remember going to Copper Harbor. Beautiful, peaceful. Thought there was a themed restaurant there having to do with Lil' Abner and Daisy Mae. Happen to remember a meal called Moon Over My Hammy. Wonder if it's still there. Now, this was summer. 18 feet of snow? Have to really think on that. Good for the hockey teams there, that cold. :-)

  2. Turns out it's The Dogpatch Cafe in Munising. Went there to eat before taking a Pictures Rocks cruise. Restaurant is still there.
