Keweenaw:  One Day Field Trip

One day is not enough!

One of Earth's strongest places to grasp and feel geoheritage, Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula and Isle Royale host exposed geological features that feature Earth's largest lava flows, spectacular native copper occurrences, metal mining history of thousands of years, a gigantic thurst fault which is exposed over long distances, vast redbeds that range from conglomerate to shale, an unusual zeolite facies hot water metamorphism, a dramatic glacial and post-glacial history, plus Earth's largest fresh water lake, with a continental location and many unique environmental conditions.  There is too much to see in one day---but if you insist, you could try this site.....
