Been cooped up in the house too much of late, so I headed out Sunday to Point Abbaye.
On the way out to Point Abbaye
Lava. The rock formations on Point Abbaye, and throughout the Keweenaw, are some of the oldest surface rock on earth, over 1 billion years old. Here you can see the flow pattern, ripples, of the lava that flowed over a billion years ago.
With the low December sun and the clouds moving in, the colors were ever changing.

We just spent a week, 09.19.15-09.26.15, in the Keweenaw area of Michigan. We stayed in Houghton with hopes to make it south to the Black River Scenic Byway, that didn’t happen, though we did make it to Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains.
Silver Creek. A very nice scenic creek just south of Copper Harbor.
Lake Superior Shore looking south from Montreal Falls.
Quincy Mine Ruins
Lake Of The Clouds. The Autumn colors were just starting, so mostly green.
Copper Harbor, Michigan.
Eagle River. I’ve explored this river many many times. It is always beautiful.
