Last weekend, my friend Kyle and I made the trek all the way north, to the northernmost part of the northernmost town in Michigan -- Copper Harbor! We snowshoed out on Hunter's Point, a spit of land enclosing the harbor. The land was once nearly turned into a new subdivision full of expensive houses. Luckily, a combination of conservancy groups and locals managed to save the land and turn it into a park.
The point borders on Lake Superior, which means awesome ice formations in the winter! We were actually snowshoeing out on the frozen lake (near the shore) for much of the trip. This was just one of many blue-colored ice formations along the way, formed on the rocks in and near the shore. We also crossed a short bit of ice to Porter's Island, an island in the middle of the harbor which was the site of the original government office responsible for leasing land to early copper miners.
This was a great trip, and I had a chance to try out an ultra-wide lens. This photo is one example, but I have some more... interesting... ones coming up soon!
