The roadside snow appeared whiter and whiter as we climbed further up into the Keweenaw, as lighter traffic creates less dirt. We drove through Mohawk and Phoenix and turned onto our road. We were interested in seeing how big the snow mound was at the entrance to our driveway. Although it doesn’t look that high in the photo at the right, it’s far too deep to drive through even with the truck. The mound on the left side of the road just opposite the 35 mph sign is the driveway entrance.
The scenery changes so much with every season. During the winter months, you can actually see quite a distance into the forest. We could see a few old crumbling buildings that can’t been seen at other times of year. We made a quick stop at Esrey Park. It’s a roadside park overlooking Lake Superior with gorgeous rock formations. You can climb the rocky steps and get a better look. We’ve taken Corvette photos here in the past.
We opted to make the complete circle tour and left Copper Harbor via Hwy. 41. That drive is lovely, too, with the road covered by tree branches part of the way. Again, we saw a few buildings we had never noticed before. Lake Medora was lovely, as usual, and we made our way back down the peninsula for dinner at The Hut in Kearsarge. The Hut is known for generous portions and delicious food. The meal didn’t disappoint! We ordered the walleye and not a morsel was left on our plates. It was a fine way to end our Valentine’s Day outing. We thank God for each other and for the blessing of living in such a beautiful area.
