This photo comes to you from my parents' favorite place to visit in the whole Copper Country: Great Sand Bay! This lovely bay north of Eagle River is just what it sounds like: big, broad, and with a wonderful sandy beach -- which is very unusual here in the Keweenaw. It's also located just south of Clark's Point which, although I have nothing to do with the name, I still like anyway.
This photo comes from a couple of weekends ago, when we stopped by Great Sand Bay on our spring waterfall tour (yes, more waterfall photos coming -- I promise). The things you can't tell from this photo are the surroundings: just a few feet away, the bay was still mostly frozen over, and a thick fog was rolling in off of the lake. But the beach itself was clear, and the rocks and sand were damp from the fog, rain, and general melting. I was attracted by the texture of the sand, and the arrangement of these rocks.
Our next stop after this were Manganese falls -- more soon!
