This post comes to you from the back side of the Cliffs, everyone's favorite greenstone range running down the spine of the Keweenaw. Kyle and I headed out on a lovely spring day, trying to find an old fire tower up north of Central. We did find it -- or at least its foundations -- and along the way, we found this puddle full of last season's leaves. They were mostly waterlogged and sunk, but just one was holding on hopefully.
Another feature of this particular hike was discovering an old mine, hidden in and among the cliffs. We found several old shafts wedged into a steep and narrow cut in the cliffs. I always love finding hidden, forgotten places like that. It feels like I was the first person to be there since the mine was closed, probably 150 years ago. While that's probably not true, I really love the idea!
