Ontonagon Sunset on Lake Superior

Unspoiled beauty and a sense of awesome wonder--that's why people like visiting the upper peninsula so much. Ontonagon is a little town on Lake Superior that is famous for its river of the same name in which was found a gigantic copper rock back in 1600's. This "Ontonagon Boulder" --a gigantic nugget of 1.5 tons of copper --is so phenomenal that the Smithsonian in Washington somehow laid claims on it and has it on display. But mostly we like the peacefulness, the deserted beaches and the fresh smell of pines and fir trees and the beautiful sunsets. It doesn't get any better than this.
