The next morning we took a road trip to the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. On the way we stopped at the visitors center in Calumet. Found out that the city is having Pasty Fest on Saturday . We were planning on leaving on Saturday so we called the campground to see if we could stay an extra day. Yes was the answer so we stayed an extra day. Calumet is an old copper mining town.

We traveled part of the way on the Copper Country Trail National Byway. We passed through a few very small towns with unusual names like Allouez, Ahmeek, Mohawk and Phoenix to the town of Eagle River on Lakeshore Drive. Along the way we made several stops for some photo opps.
Now that's a lot of snow.
We stopped at the Jampot, a store selling jams , jellies and baked goods made by local Monks, from the Society of ST John. The Abbey is called Poor Rock Abbey. Of course we had to buy some of their jellies to support the abbey, not to support Bob's belly.
We took a lunch break sitting on the rocks in front of the Eagle Harbor Lighthouse. There is a small museum at the lighthouse.Note clear the water.
