Eric Stewart was visiting the Copper Country recently and took a hike along the Monks Trail, exploring the Arnold Mine Ruins along the way. It looks like it may have been a bit foggy that morning, which adds to the mystery of the old ruins and what took place there during the mining days of yore.
A couple unique items were spotted on the hike, including the third photo of an interesting tree root, growing over the other roots and looking a bit like a pipe laid across the other tree roots. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a root grow over the others like this one. Then the next photo shows a fancy bench you encounter on the hike, should you need to take a rest before continuing the hike. The last shot is the pond on the trail, with the walkway and bridge to cross over and continue on your way. It seems the leaves have been falling in this area of the Keweenaw, with quite a few decorating the floor of the woods.
Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula shares a video alert that this is the Final Weekend for great color views and we’re lucky in this area to have not one, but two chair lift color rides. One at Mont Ripley and the other at Mt. Bohemia.
Just a note that this won’t be the last or final fall color photos. We have a plethora of beautiful fall shots, so we’ll be able to continue the fall colors even after they’ve all fallen from the branches, so stay tuned!
