Thoughts of a hidden beach in January

With the temperatures in the teens this weekend, my thoughts went back to summer days and beaches that I want to see again. I found this one between Copper and Eagle Harbor on Lake Superior in the Keweenaw Peninsula. I was doing the research for my travel guide and stopped to snap a picture, but didn't have time to explore he beach as much as I wanted to. There wasn't a soul around and I would have liked to have walked out on the wooded point in the photo. I plan on getting back there this coming summer when doing research on a new paddling guide to Michigan for my publisher, The Countryman Press.


  1. Nice to see Lake Superior so calm! Probably pretty this time of year too, but I wouldn't make the trip now.

  2. One of my daughter's favorite swimming beaches in the summer. We love that whole stretch of road along the lake from Copper Harbar ending back at Hwy 41 at Ahmeek.
