This is a fascinating spot which I pass each day on the way from Eagle River to Calumet. Besides being site of the bustling mining community of Clifton (century before last), up on top of those Cliffs is a wonderland to explore.

There is actually a road which comes right out to the edge of the steep drop, the "Great North American Trail", as shown on some old maps. It winds around back through the woods and eventually finds its way out, between Phoenix and Five Mile Point road on M-26.

Today I really thought it was fog, but as the cloud moved out over Cliff Drive it turned out to be a fine, misty snow... a foretaste of things to come.

What a beautiful photo! I may be strange, but I really like days like that. Everything is so quiet
and peaceful.
Thanks for ALL of the wonderful photos!!

What a great moody photo! I can almost hear the snow gently landing on the branches.

Beautiful photo, Charlie. Makes me homesick! I can't wait to get back to the Keweenaw and see days like this, myself. Only a week more at sea...

What a beautiful photo! I once took some pictures on a "black and white" day like that, and they turned out quite interesting. One was of the Garnet House, and the only color was a slight hint of red on the house and the posts out by the road. Another was of the Phoenix Church, and the only color was the yellow line on the road and a road sign. As much as weather like that depresses some people, a very gray day can be a photogapher's dream. Keep up the good work!

Great shot Charlie. Reminds me of the drive on US-2 from Escanaba to St Iggy..only when is SO cold out it becomes ICE FOG!! (Fog which freezes on contact)
This is as beautiful and less stressful to drive through!!

Makes me feel cold just to view it. They say a great picture affects your mood.

God what possessed me to leave the Keweenaw!!!!!!................................
The "Big Bucks" of Troll Land!!!!!!, and they are not the ones featured on Fred Trott's "Big Buck Night". (Instead they feature "Ben Franklin" and company.) This photo is a memorable one to me, the area surrounding the North American Mine. Me and my bro' spent many an hour exploring the ruins of
this early mine in the copper country.
Hello to all at Still waters's and to Mike my Bro'
get off your "butt" get out and enjoy what you have, you won't realize how special a place the Keweenaw is until your gone. ("Private Property" signs are not a myth, they do exist. Here in troll land.)
