Nancy Haun made a trek up Marquette Mountain to check out the views of the city of Marquette from a higher vantage point recently. She snapped some good shots showing color, both in the leaves and the building colors, too. Nancy is a train buff, so she said she really likes that first photo, because it has the old Train Depot in the shot.

Looking at all three photos, there are a number of landmarks that Marquette is known for. Let’s play “Name that Marquette Landmark” and see how many places can be identified. The prize will be bragging rights for knowing Marquette so well.

While we’re waiting for everyone to play, you can go on a Dennis Family adventure at Craig Lake State Park. Jeff Dennis added this note of caution to his video: “Warning: This is a very remote, wilderness park, great for hikers. Craig Lake State Park is a remote public recreation area covering 8,459 acres in Baraga County on the Upper Peninsula of the state of Michigan. The state park has several lakes that are accessible only by foot or paddling. The property was once the private preserve of Fred Miller, president of the Miller Brewing Company. Includes a short clip of Iron Horse's version of Enter Sandman by Metallica.”

So gorgeous! I love Marquette!

I agree...Marquette holds a special place in my
heart. And the video was excellent...what a great
family outing. Thanks for taking us along.

I LOVE those Dennis family spins...try to hit
everyone of them!! PLUS...that's what a family
should look like! Love it!

Beautiful pics of Marquette, maybe a future home
for the boss & me.... just maybe... we're looking
and considering that and other area's as we discuss
downsizing possibly next year. Of course Marquette
will always hold a special place in my heart as
well, having graduated from NMU. But rooting for
the Packers over the losing Lions, that still might
be a tough one! lol

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 11:14 pm:

Doesn't matter how often the Lions lose, UC. Could
never root for the Packers over them, or anybody else
for that matter.

Moving to Marquette maybe, huh? We sold our house
and are moving into an apartment out here for about 9
months until we decide what to do and where to go.
Who knows, we just may like apartment living. It
sure will be a lot easier on the body.

I used to be a Lions fan. Way back in the 70's we used to always go to the Thanksgiving game in Briggs Stadium, but nowadays my favorite team is whoever the Cowboys are playing.

One of my bucket list items is to spend at least one night in the Craig Lake State Park/Teddy Lake Yurt.

My husband and I bought a truck camper last year. We have
talked about “boondocking” at Craig Lake. Maybe next year.
We did walk in to White Deer Lake in the McCormick Tract last
year. Love the photos of Marquette and the video.

UC, what great possibilities! Sounds perfect to me - hope it works out for you!

How's that rehab going?

By D. A. (Midwested) on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 06:14 pm:

After a bit of research I've learned the Keewaydin Lake yurt might be a better choice for a senior like me. I'm not sure how difficult the moderate walk-in from the parking lot to the Craig Lake yurt is but the Keewaydin Lake yurt is advertised on the Michigan DNR website as being ADA (handicapped) accessible. I'll need to do some more research on both, maybe a phone call to the DNR or maybe someone here can add more information. A dead of winter stay sounds exciting but not for me now. I used to do tent camping in the Keweenaw winters. You spend almost all your time and energy just staying warm, hydrated, nourished, and alive.

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 07:32 pm:

Deb, I understand the simplicity of an apartment or
even a condo and being easier on the body, kinda
thinking along those lines or a smaller sq ft ranch
style home. :=))

jbuck, Rehab is going well 3 days/week, hoping to
be 100% by the end of the year. The only issue I'm
having now is if I overdue lifting or move the
wrong way.... then the sternum reminds me of what
took place back in July!! lol
