I worked in Houghton (at MTU) for one summer in 1999 doing some air quality work. The Upper Peninsula is totally beautiful in the summer. The temperature is perfect (in the summer) and the sky looks like it could go on forever.

Houghton is on the Keweenaw Peninsula of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Across the Portage Canal is the town of Hancock. The two towns are both pretty small, and are just seperated by a really cool bridge that lifts straight up. Well, I think it is interesting.

I wish that I could remember everything that I did in Houghton. It was a WONDERFUL summer and I really would like to go back one day. The landscape is really breathtaking, and great for anyone who might like camping, nature, or the outdoors. Maybe one day I will scan pictures in (I didn't have a digital camera at the time) other than the ones that I had for my presentations.
