As we head east we know we have definitely left the prairies behind ---- we drive past lots and lots of trees, rivers and lakes as we drive through Minnesota and Wisconsin. On the 26th we head into the upper Michigan peninsula stopping at Marquette for the night. We've stopped early enough that we have time to drive around Marquette and check the town out. In the misty morning of the 27th we drove along the lake away from town to see what that area was like. In the afternoon, we were on the road again heading to Sault Ste. Marie and Ontario.
Zaph in front of the memorial to seamen.
A view of the harbor. The bell is from the original fire station that was built in the 1880's.
The bike paths at the harbor park were lined with over two hundred doors in the exhibit --- "Grandma Doors". Artists decorated their doors honoring their grandmothers.
An out of use ore dock.
A breakwater --- it was quite misty so you can hardly see the lighthouse at the end of the breakwater.
The Lake Michigan shoreline.
