Lake Superior Sunset over Eagle Harbor Lighthouse

Eagle Harbor Lighthouse  Complex

               The area is one of the Midwest's most environmentally diverse regions with
                   Lake Superior surrounding the Keweenaw Peninsula, its rugged mountain ridges
                   and valleys, the Copper Harbor, Eagle Harbor, and Mendota lighthouses,
                   the Brockway Mountain drive, it's miles of  pristine beaches, the copper mining
                  history of the area, mine tours and numerous mines for rock and mineral collecting, 
                   it's many waterfalls, berry picking (bilberry, thimbleberry, blueberry, blackberry,
                   wild strawberry, and raspberries), ancient pine forests, ghost-towns, old mining
                   villages and ruins, old cemeteries, lake shipping history, and the people of the
                   Copper Country.  I have tried to capture the look and feel of the area through
                   my photography over the years.

The Keweenaw

The Keweenaw Peninsula is the northernmost part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It projects into Lake Superior and was the site of the first copper boom in the United States. As of the 2000 census, its population was roughly 43,200.
