Copper Country

Good evening everyone! Tonight I thought I would share more pictures from our trip to Houghton, MI. The first day we were there we saw a lot of great places. We left Houghton and went down Covered Road towards Freda, MI. This first picture was taken on Covered Road.

After we got off of Covered Road we came into a small town called Redridge. We stopped and looked at the Redridge Dam.

This next picture was taken in Freda, MI and is the remains of the Champion Mill, which operated from 1905 to 1967. The mill was used during the mining of copper in the Upper Peninsula. 

This photo is of the shores of Lake Superior in Freda, MI. From pictures I have seen on the internet I think this was the location of the Freda Park, which was opened in 1908 and closed in 1918. 

If anyone is interested in learning more about the Champion Mill here are a couple good sites that I found:

Hope everyone had a great Tuesday! 😀

    I love all of these photographs. But I really like the first one!!! WOW!

  6. Gotta chime in here with the same reaction. That first shot is outstanding. The straight vertical lines of the trees that go one forever, and then the horizontal line of the road that also goes on forever. Just beautiful, Marie! Thanks for taking me on this tour also. 🙂

  7. Wonderful autumnal shot, photo #1, great feeling of height, symmetry and lovely colours. Thanks for posting it!
