Keweenaw rocket launch site hike.

On Sunday afternoon we gathered with Mark's gang and headed up the Keweenaw to hike out to the end of the peninsula and see a rocket launch site.  For 10 years ending in 1971 upper atmosphere research rockets were fired from here.   More info can be found here.
We headed east from the cars.

Some friendly boys from Brazil came along.   I loved them!

It was pretty warm out for a winter dog.

The view from the tip.  I went for a swim which make me itchy.

Now we head north along the shore, towards the site.

The launch platform.

We hike back.

Oh ya Nick, you are such a ham!
