Each and every one of these places is worthy of its own blog post but it’s been such an amazingly packed week I thought I’d condense them into one post keeping it short and sweet with lots of photos. It was such a fantastic week of sightseeing! The Upper Peninsula continued to be incredible! Copper Harbor in the uppermost part of the U.P. was incredibly beautiful. Such a tiny little place with a year round population of 85. Brockway Drive was the highlight, called the most beautiful drive in Michigan its 14 miles of the most magical scenery you can imagine.
Other highlights of the week were Eagle Harbor also in the U.P, the twin cities of Houghton and Hancock, The Quincy Mine, Copper Peak Adventure Ride, Adventure Mine, The Stone Arch Festival, Walker Art Center, The Sculpture Garden and the seriously cool Mill District all in Minneapolis.
Even though they’re the most recent photos (taken today) I’m going to start out with the pictures from the Stone Arch Festival because they’re my favorite! The festival centers around the famous Stone Arch Bridge and is two days of live bands, food vendors and a huge number of artists and assorted booths. I went both days. Saturday it was pouring rain but I had a lot of fun with Sister Stratton (sadly not pictured here). I’m so glad that I went back today though. The weather was beautiful and the festival was in high gear. The areas on both sides of the bridge are great! On one side is the Mill District and the other side is The Riverfront District. Its one of the most beautiful downtown areas I’ve ever seen. Minneapolis is a city filled with natural beauty, culture, amazing architecture and a rich history.
