Copper Harbor

Copper Harbor in most Northern town in Michigan.  It is a major tourist attraction.  In summer, many summer residents return to enjoy the cool Lake Superior breezes.  Fort Wilkins State Historical Park is a popular destination for summer tourists.

Gull Rock Light, Coastline, Copper Harbor, MI 49918, Phone: (906) 337-4579.  This lighthouse must have been one of the loneliest assignments a Lake Superior lighthouse keeper would have to endure. The island is so small that during stormy weather waves wash over the entire area, leaving only the house and its square brick tower to withstand the forces of nature.

Manganese Falls
