Ft. Wilkens in Copper Harbor...1840.

Ft Wilkins State Historical Park, circa 1840. Our government sent troops to Copper Harbor to protect the people from thieving miners and Indian uprisings. The fort remained in operation for about 15 years and housed some 240 military men.

The end of a great trip to Michigan....cheers!

A freighter a really long way away on Lake Superior.

An Upper Peninsula treat....a pasty. A meat and veggie lunch that began with the miners of the 1800s.

Scot and I went down into the Delaware Copper mine....cold and wet.

The rocks are almost unreal... Like someone splashed paint.
