The Upper Peninsula of Michigan with Kenz

We arrived in Sault Ste. Marie last night and took off this morning for a day of adventure. We took a boat trip through the locks where we rose up 21 ft. to the height of Lake Superior, cruised by the Algoma steel mills on the Canadian side and then back through the locks where we were lowered 21 ft. down to the Lake Huron water height. Very cool to watch the locks closing and the boat rising and then, falling slowly.

We also went to the Tower of History, actually built to represent the three crosses on Calvary but went to the top and looked over the "Soo" and the town. Went to St. Mary's Catholic Church, the home of the first Archbishop of the UP, Bishop Baraga. See the stained glass is gorgeous.
