H is for Houghton, which I call my Home. It's also for Hancock, our sister city across the river. Here's Houghton's hillside, and the H-like lift bridge crossing the Portage Canal. Both Houghton and Hancock are built on steep hillsides, leading down to the Portage Canal -- which was once a very important water route for ships, picking up copper and dropping off supplies for the local mines.
We are, as you may notice, a bit of a snowy land. This winter has been a bit disappointing -- only 150 inches so far. That's ok -- we still have at least two full months of winter left before spring really starts. We'll make it up!
This photo was taken from an old rock pile, made by the Quincy Mine up on the hill above Hancock, on a beautiful and sunny day -- one of the few we've had recently.
