Dan Urbanski sent some of the Virginia Creeper growing on the outer walls of Lancet Glass in Houghton ( that was back on Oct 4), and now Don Schwenk and his son provide a glimpse of the view inside the building, from their top floor loft. Don says some of the creeper was growing across his bedroom window.

For those who had asked where Lancet Glass is located, I hope this gives you a better idea.

Nice canal shot, Don, but a question from a departed Keweenaw girl -- where did all the extra parking come from in front of the Lancet, the B&B and Hardee's??

what a beautiful sky and the canal looks so tranquil~Thanks once again for showing me a little bit of home while I am away at school!

Great canal shot!I wonder, can anyone give me a bit of history info on the canal? Was the Portage waterway always there or is it man-made?

The last 2 miles of the canal on the western side was marsh/swamp(wetlands), it could be traversed by canoe with very few portages. It was man who dug out, widened, and added retaining walls to accomodate shipping. You can see evidence of this if you goto Lilly Pond off of M203 between Hancock and McLaines State Park.

Don is an awesome guy, I feel fortunate to be able to call him a friend. Don's talent and style is very unique. Maybe someday he'll share a peek of the inside of his loft, you'll enjoy the "tour"....:) Susie
