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!
