When we drive around the Keweenaw my wife likes to stoop at the Jampot run by the Holy Transfiguration Skete Society of St. Johns Catholic Monastery. Actually I don’t mind that she wants to stop because the bake goods she comes back with are outstanding. While she is shopping I walk over to Jacobs Falls for some waterfall photography.
One of the really beautiful roads in the Keweenaw is highway 41 as it meanders through the hills into Copper Harbor. Depending upon when you take it in the fall the colors could be dominated by yellows or reds. A couple of photographers were working down the road.
Located just outside Lac La Belle Mount Bohemia is a extreme destination ski area. It caters to expert skiers and beginning skiers are not allowed. It doesn’t make snow and relies on nature to provide the snow. Our son loved this ski area. While driving along the road at the base of the mountain skiers would pop out of the woods along the road. A bus would drive along the road to pick up skiers and take them back to the ski lift. During the fall color season they offer lift rides to the top of the mountain.
On our trip up the Keweenaw we stopped at the harbor in Lac La Belle to photograph the beautiful color in the trees. Unfortunately there was just enough wind to dampen the reflections in the water.
