Laurie Bashaw and her hubby, Ed, went on a hike along Teal Lake between Ishpeming and Negaunee. They accessed the trail from Ishpeming at Al Quaal, opposite of US 141 and much higher up, too. Asked if it was a difficult trail, Laurie said there were lots of ups and downs and walking around wet spots, but all in all, it wasn’t too bad and they have been on more difficult trails. The view from up there is outstanding!

In the third photo, you can see the tailing pile or waste rock pile from the Tilden Mine. The following information is from the K102.5 – Kalamazoo’s Greatest Hits webpage, I thought this was quite interesting:

Mount Arvon in northern Michigan's Huron Mountains has always been considered the highest point in the state. Surprisingly, that high point has been replaced by a pile of mining waste from the Tilden Mine near Ishpeming, which at the time of this article (January 2019) was over 2000 ft. above sea level.

Mount Arvon is 1979 feet, so the Tilden Mine pile is now at least 21 feet higher, and the mine is active, meaning the pile, and the new high point will only grow higher. Have faith, though, Mount Arvon remains Michigan's naturally made high point. Another interesting trivia about this mine waste mountain, is that it can be seen throughout Marquette County and is less than two miles from the state's lowest point of elevation at around 300 feet above sea level, the Empire Mine pit.”
On a separate adventure, Laurie’s hubby, Ed Korpi was fishing with his son on the Silver River in the L’Anse area, just east of Herman when they came upon this beautiful waterfall, with not one, not two, but three cascades flowing over the rock wall there. If you like the sounds of waterfalls, make sure your speakers are turned up!

"Sitting on the Rock of the Bay"...nice play on
words, Mary.
I always loved driving by Teal Lake on my way UP,
on a clear blue-sunny day, the color of the lake
looks magnificent.
