Moose Swimming

August 7, 2007



 
A large cow in front with a young bull behind her. Moose are great swimmers and can easily cover long distances with surprising speed. We watched these ones for 5 minutes as they effortlessly swam the entire length of the cove.

Moose

August 6, 2007



 
Not a very good photo, but I wanted the capture the moment anyway. All of us were hopeful about seeing moose during our week on Isle Royale. This was the first of four that I saw. We hadn't even been on the trail for an hour.

Copper Harbor

August 5, 2007



 
Copper Harbor was one of my favorite places to visit while I was in college, even though it's 600 miles from Ann Arbor. It's located on Lake Superior at the tip of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula (a large subpeninsula on the northern side of the Upper Peninsula). It's the most remote destination in Michigan, even farther from a city than Isle Royale. Unless you're a northerner by heart, don't go there in winter.
