In warm temps, Mark's gang headed northeast up the Keweenaw to hike in to Horseshoe Harbor preserve.
|It was HOT here.|
|Oh good, we head down the road towards the shore.|
|I'm glad Bella came.|
|They need to look at a map. I see the trail just fine.|
|On the shore, a brisk west wind makes it cooler here. |
This is another Copper Harbor conglomerate outcrop.
|Mark crosses this crevasse. It's quite deep.|
|The people were nervous crossing it so again,|
I showed them how to jump over.
|The white rock is stromatolites found here. |
This is a fossilized algae and very, very old.
|Me and Bella took a cool dip.|
|The 2-leggeds egged me out to show them how to swim.|
|I recommend dog-paddliing.|
|Time to head back.|
|A closer look at the stromatolite.|
|This one had been drilled for core sampling.|
|One last cooling dip.|
|This lake is the prettiest!|
|I swam laps around them.|
|Time to head back to the car.|
|We're so glad the Nature Conservancy has kept this special|
place open for everyone.
