Copper Harbor is about 40 minutes North of Houghton-Hancock and is a mountain biking mecca around here. It’s on the big lake, has miles and miles of trails, a brewery, and it is THE place to go for a fall color tour, though it seems like my drive home about does it too. Anyway, we’d never been, so when Kelly and Jason came to visit, we headed up there. We drove to the harbor, took a walk on the rocky beach, played fetch with the pups and checked out Fort Wilkins State Park, which was the highlight of Bryan’s year. It reminded me of the middle school trip to Fort Snelling that all southern Minnesota students inevitably took in their youth. What I learned, basically, was that the fort was up and running for either two years or twenty-something. It’s hard to say, AND that you some men got arrested for “general worthlessness.” This appears to be an excellent crime to be charged with. I’m aiming for this for my next charges.
After the fort, we went to Brickside Brewery and then threw out plans to see music in Hancock so that we could mini golf. We drove Brockaway Drive on the way home, which is on top of the world. Then it was dinner at The Library, an afternoon of football at the Mineshaft, and off they had to go. Can’t wait for their next visit!
