Happy 2nd Anniversary!

We celebrated our 2 year anniversary with a short mid-week trip to the Keweenaw Peninsula, about 3 hours north of Iron Mountain.  We stayed in a renovated mansion from the copper mining days in Laurium, which was about 30 minutes from our destination of Copper Harbor.  The mansion was interesting, and a nice stay, but not really our style.  We discovered on our day trip to Copper Harbor that the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge is much more our style and we need to make another trip next year.

Sadly, we didn't get to do anything we wanted to do, because the one full day we had it rained pretty much all day, and everything we wanted to do was outdoors.  Oh well, we will have to try again sometime!  It was still nice to get out of town and away from the cats, though!  We got to sleep in a king size bed and our carriage house had a six foot jacuzzi bath tub!  Since we didn't get to do all the things we had planned on I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few that I did take.

The awesome tiled porch

Eagle River Falls

Roadside stop in Eagle River

Some more falls (don't remember the name of the town)

Thought this bridge was neat

The very tip of Keweenaw Peninsula, at the top of Brockway Mountain

This is pretty much what it looked like all day Thursday :(

But then we had a beautiful day of course for the drive back!

The trip would not have been complete without a stop to golf-this is George Young Golf Course, where Alex gets to golf for $10 because he's a pastor!
