Snow Dunes

A double hill of poor rock, covered in snow, against a blue sky.
It's like the Sahara out here!
You can purchase a print of this photo!

I grabbed this photo this past weekend, on one of three (!) snowshoe outings. When it snows enough, the old mine rockpiles start to look like big white sand dunes.

For those of you into copper country exploring -- guess where this is! Hint: that big, very flat, and empty expanse of snow in front of the piles (and the very pointy shape) should be a hint. Hopefully Tricia will forgive me for temporarily stealing her "Where in the Copper Country?" idea, just for one post.

I forgive you...just this once! :)

I won't press my luck! :P

So... know where it is?

Tricia said...

Not sure...I'll cheat and ask Mike :)

Tricia said...

Ok, that didn't work like I planned - you stumped him.

I'll toss out a hint: the rock piles are flowing into a big pond (that's the big flat snowy field), and they're north of the portage. There aren't too many like that...
