Brockway Mountain, Michigan, 1-31-20

October 2, 2020

Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula is a full 9 hour drive from where I live in the central Lower Peninsula, almost as far away as New York City, but
it’s where my soul lives.

Because it’s so far away, and the winter roads so unpredictable, I’ve not been there in January until I was invited to speak at Michigan Tech University, in nearby Houghton, last January.

By a stroke of luck, I had an open day, and scored an invite to ride with a trail groomer to the top of Brockway Mountain, which overlooks Lake Superior between Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor. (winter population 45, so I’m told)
After a cup of coffee at the only open cafe, I hopped in for a 3 hour ride, and the driver was friendly enough to stop at the top and allow me to fly a drone.
A recent storm had left the entire area with a coating of snow and hoarfrost. The blue schmear in the distance is Lake Superior.

Been meaning to pull this together for quite a while, obviously it’s been a distracting few months.
