Stopped here the first week of June!

Close enough on loose gravel. Unless you are looking to become another selfie statistic

Where is that?

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

😎Picture this: you're ripping down The Flow, one of the first trails built in this style literally anywhere. It's early 2019 and the trail has been beat up by thousands of riders over nearly a decade of use. An eroded, boulder-strewn berm lies just ahead through the undergrowth. You test your brakes. The berm comes into view... and you effortlessly shoot through the corner into the next fiery straightaway. Berm after berm... all perfect. You rejoice: The Flow has been returned to its former glory. Rock Solid Trail Contracting, LLC. expects to wrap up construction this week. Ride on. 🤘🚵‍♀️ ... See MoreSee Less

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

World-Record Holding Copper Slab

The A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum located in Houghton, Michigan has the largest public display of minerals from the Great Lakes region and is the official Mineral Museum of Michigan. The world's best collection of Michigan minerals from around the world are part of its collection and exhibits. The University of Michigan mineral collection is held by the museum under the Michigan Mineral Alliance. And, the world-record holding 19-ton copper specimen is on exhibit in the front Copper Pavilion.

Here is a photo of the copper slab, discovered by divers off the shores of the Keweenaw Peninsula, Great Sand Bay, being lifted from Superior by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers barge. (diver Bob Barron)

Check it out at the A.E. Seaman Mineral Museum.

Vanessa McCaffrey...your next visit, this museum should be on your list of places to see.

Megan Winn wanna go?

I thought the record holder was the 28.2 Ton slab pulled from a couple land owners property up there? collectorsedge.com/blogs/news/collectors-edge-minerals-purchases-the-worlds-largest-float-copper-...

Went to museum yesterday. It was worth the visit.

Awesome! How much would that be worth in todays copper prices?

I remember when this was found and the people who found it. You would of never thought it was copper from the underwater video.

Beautiful picture!

This museum is worth a visit. We never miss the opportunity to return when we visit the Copper Country.

Is the the float copper that was on a flat bed trailer in Sidnaw and for sale back in 1978?

Megan Winn wanna go?

We might be seeing Bob in a few weeks!👍❤️

Great place to visit.

Amazing photo
