Photo's from the Upper Peninsula travels

On our second day in the UP, we decided to travel from Silver City (where we stayed) to the tip of the finger to Copper Harbor.  We first made a stop in Ontonagon and took pictures of the lighthouse.  This used to be a ship repair port, so the ships would come into the canal and dock.
Next, we drove south to the Old Victoria Historic Townsite along the Victoria River.  They weren't open for tours yet that day, but I did spend a lot of time thinking about what life was about during the olden days.  This little town would have been in the middle of nowhere.

Then we headed up the coast to Eagle Harbor, and stopped at Jacobs Falls.  The coastline on the north side of the finger was absolutely stunning.
From there, on to Copper harbor and the Fort Wilkins State Park and Lighthouse.

Have a wonderful day!
