Travel Michigan.....Introduction to the area and local information

      Eagle Harbor Michigan

                      Situated in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Eagle Harbor, nestled on

                     the south shore of  Lake Superior in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, is one of 

                     many of it's uniquely  beautiful places. The area has a rich copper mining history

                     with many preserved  historically significant features.  So it gets it's name

                     "The Copper Country." The  Keweenaw National Historical Park commemorates

                     the copper mining history of  the Keweenaw.  Geologically, the rocks known as

                     the Keweenaw lava-flows are the oldest known at more than one and a half 

                     billion years old and contribute to the  areas unique topography.  The topography

                     ranges from sandy and rocky shorelines to rugged hills reaching to mountains 

                     and the beautiful Brockway Mountain drive.   Overall, it is truly a magical place. 

                     I hope my photo-interpretation gives you a  glimpse of it's beauty.  

                     Enjoy and protect!   Enjoy the Keweenaw Peninsula.
