You can almost hear an audible sigh of relaxation when you view this photo, taken by Brad Dulong. I can't think of a better way to "get away from it all", than to pack a picnic lunch, head north on M-26 and occupy myself with studying the Big Lake from the vantage point of Esrey Park. Right about where the gentleman in the lower right of the picture is, would do just fine! In case you're wondering, the little bay we're gazing into, is known as Agate Harbor.

Good morning! Send moisture, please!

I would appreciate very much someone telling me exactly where Esrey Park is located. Thanks.

I'm with you, Paul. We need rain desperately here in Ann Arbor, too.

Matt, Esrey is located between Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor. It's just a beautiful little park that we can't get enough of when we're there.

Thanks for the great shot, Brad.

Esrey Park is on M26 between Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor.

I was just up through Esrey on the requisite "Copper Country Cruise" with my sister and nephews, age 6 and 8, who were visiting from down below. The boys liked the beach and chutes & ladders the most -- still a little too young to appreciate their uncle's love of copper mining history (I'm patient, though, and know they'll come around).

By the by, it's time all lovers of Copper Country food get hepped about the big traveling Smithsonian exhibit visiting Calumet July 13-August 26.

I posted some information over in the What'sUp section, including a detailed schedule of events.

Should be a lot of fun.

This is a great picture. This area has some of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. We just got back from a few days in Eagle Harbor, Copper Harbor and even Jacobsville !! It was a wonderful trip!

We were at the park last week, grilled some hot dogs, pulled out the lawn chairs and just kicked back and relaxed by the water. Now Im back in Detroit, there's something wrong with that.

unclechuck: we were there also. How gorgeous it was, and phenominal weather! Now, like you, we're back to this obnoxious heat and humidity, but I guess the weather's breaking for the end of the week. Quite a shock, coming back here, hey?

3 more weeks and i'll be on the shores of the "big" lake:)!

I have enjoyed the posts. My wife and I are returning to the UP in September for our second annual visit. Like most tourists we would like to know of places to see in the area and things to do. Thanks in advance.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Wednesday, July 11, 2007 - 09:32 pm:

There are some awesome agates and thomsonites in and around Esrey. A couple of my larger agates are from just about where that guy is standing. The Museum has quite a few fine examples of agates from Esrey Park.......
