The U.P. is definitely a unique place to live or visit and with today’s archive shots, we’ll show you a few of the reasons why. We begin with a photo from Jonathan Hopper (the original Pasty Camist), taken back in 2002. If you’ve ever made your way north along US41/M26, you’ve most likely seen this shop, just outside of Calumet, The Last Place on Earth. I not only love the name and the implication that you’re coming to the end of the earth, but they have a clever sign to let you know if they’re open or “SHUT”.

Another photo of something you probably don’t see every day, was snapped by Jeff Massie, in 2005. This is a frozen Teal Lake, in the Ishpeming/Negaunee area, but looking closer, the focus of the photo is someone riding their bicycle across the frozen lake with their furry friend close behind. I think this was before the “fat tire” bikes for winter riding became so popular, so I wonder if this bicyclist had studded tires or chains to keep from slipping and sliding along.

Our last unique spot here UP North, is located just outside of Marquette and is known as Lakenenland. Eric Stewart visited there in 2016, where a metal welder has taken scrap metal and made some interesting sculptures over the past 20 years. They’re all displayed throughout the property and it’s free for anyone to go and check it out.

Today’s video takes us to Lakenenland also, with Travel Marquette Michigan back in 2015. Looks like a fun place to take the family, even in the winter!

The Last Place on Earth was Edna's Bar in the old

That open & shut sign at the Last Place On Earth is actually part of a railroad track switch.

Been past the Last Place on Earth many, many times but have never stopped there. Yet. I thought the pic with the biker was Teal Lake, I was right. :o)
