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.

After a long day driving Dawn down to Mount Pleasant MI and then back again, I was pooped. Sitting just watching out the window I saw some dark clouds rolling in but didn’t think much about it. I let the dogs out and after Eli came in I noticed that he was damp from rain, then in the corner of my eye I saw the bright glow of an end of a rainbow. I rushed to get my camera and ran outside to get some photos, but what I saw was more than just the end of a rainbow, it was a full arch. There is also a second, part of a double, rainbow on the far right side trying to shine through.
We got a bit of snow on Saturday, but not near as much as just a couple miles south. Reports ranged from 1.5″ upward to 6″.
