Day three - more Michigan, then Wisconsin

Gena at Piers Gorge

Dan the man at Piers Gorge

Started the day in Iron Mountain, then Iron River, then Ironwood!!  Confusing...  We stopped off at Piers Gorge - fabulous, lovely falls with that lovely tanin-colored water (see pictures).  Then the Cornish Mine Museum - largest mechanical pump in the world....!  Every turn of the road is so magnificent, with the colors right at peak.  I couldn't even read, because I never tire of looking at those trees.  We stopped in Ashland, WI, and had our lunch looking at Lake Superior and the gargantuan Ashland Soo Line Ore dock, the largest of its kind in the world....I don't make this up, folks - that's what the travel book said!  Tonight, we're in a camping place just east of Superior, the last town in Wisconsin.  Perfect day - now sitting here having some smoked white fish, Pinconning cheese, and wine from a vinyard we found in the UP.  Wow, do we live in a beautiful state, country, world!!  Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!
