This is a virtual tour due to travel restrictions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. I find that these imaginary tours provide great motivation to workout inside because the temperatures are too cold for me to ride outside. I also enjoy learning about an area new where I have not traveled.
I checked out the link listed above and found how much I did not know about Cornwall and Cornish people, a Celtic ethnic group and a minority in the country. I have a lot to learn.
For many years I had hoped to do this ride. This virtual journey is outlines my route. When I do the ride, I now have a good guide. The route totals over 1200 miles.
Now I am moving on to the United Kingdom to do the Conqueror Challenge of Land's End to John O'Groats. This will be over a 1000 mile tour. Please join me.
In 1984 a fire gutted the building and I see it is for sale for $795,000 with surrounding acreage. Have you ever thought of living in a lighthouse.
In the 1840 the copper rush started and this area built up from the boom. The area is recreational now and you will see places vacated for many years.
The Brockway Mountain Drive, 8.8 miles, has several nice vista spots to enjoy the scene.
In research, I discovered that this is called the Keweenaw Waterway . It was first dredged in 1860 and has a depth of 25 feet. Locally the area north is known as Copper Island because it is not connected to the Upper Peninsula. Only way across is by US 41/ M-26.
This is the birds eye view of the Huron Mountain. This is a very rugged and wild area. If this is your thing, Most peaks do not have names. Mount Arvon at 1980 feet is the tallest spot in Michigan and Mount Curwood is second at 1979 feet. This area gets much lake effect snow. It is estimated that snowfall will exceed 200 inches per winter.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
