The Porcupine Mountains

What an adventure I had last week for my "real" job =) its a great job and I love it....I get to go along on some great trips, and see new places in Michigan's Upper Peninsula...this last trip to The Porcupine Mountains has blown a lot of things I have done out of the water...first off, we explored Bond Falls, then the Sylvania Wilerness Area, Black River Harbor, Copper Peak, hiked the Porcupine Mountains (saw a ton of waterfalls and some amazing views), then we went to the Ontonagon Museum & Lighthouse, and lastly to the Adventure Mine which was uneblieveable! I love the fall colors in these images...because I am able to saturate the colors to show you how vibrant they really were...well saturated images are my favorite! I will try to put little snipits of information below each of the images posted below so you know where they were (if I can remember off the top of my head) =) ENJOY! I hope you venture to the Western end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula SOON.
