|The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge was built in 1934-35 during the Great Depression - a wonderful throwback to a simpler time. It has large exposed log beams and vaulted ceilings.|
Here's something you don't see too often... This is sort of a giant visual aid to show how much snow accumulates here each year. That's accumulated snowfall, so as more snow comes down the snow beneath it compresses, sometimes melts or evaporates... so what is on the ground at any one time is rarely over 4 or 5 feet...
|The arrow on the side tracks last years total snowfall in feet.|
Here's a better shot of the plaque...
|Think, copious amounts of snow... see my driveway post!|
Needless to say this part of the peninsula gets a bit of snow.
|Em hmm, lots of snow...|
|A beautiful day!|
Here are some of the pines...
|Two giants mere feet apart, together for hundreds of years...|
A seedling around the year 1500...
|This tree was standing and swaying in the wind when Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo Galilei were making history|
|We hiked right up to the swamp... it's not for the faint of heart!|
Hope you all enjoyed the little hike through this great old woods.
