#130 – Tuesday, Sept 30, 2014 – Trees, Trees and more Trees

I left Duluth at 8:20am.  I got held up at the bridge….it was just coming back down from letting a boat go under.  I drove to Houghton, MI and checked in at the RV park and then drove up to Copper Harbor, MI.

The entire town of Houghton looks like it should be on a postcard.  The town is built around a waterway and it is beautiful.  The RV Park is owned by the city and is part of the park system.  The downside to Houghton….no cell service and no TV service.  It is right on the water…..here are pictures of my site.

Here are few pictures from my drive.  I drove a total of 320 miles today.

This area is called the Upper Peninsula of Michigan or U.P.  Residents here call themselves “Yoopers”.  There are 15 counties in the U.P. and four of them are in the Central time zone and eleven are in the eastern time zone.  I am currently in the eastern time zone.  The largest city in the U.P. has a population of 21,355.

The U.P. is bordered by 3 of the 5 “great lakes”…Superior, Michigan and Huron.

Lake Superior (French: Lac Supérieur) is the largest of the Great Lakes of North America. The lake is shared by Canada’s Ontario and the United State’s Minnesota to the north and west, and Wisconsin and Michigan to the south. It is generally considered the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area.[6] It is the world’s third-largest freshwater lake by volume and the largest by volume in North America.[
