Highlights from the End of the Earth

I’ve been away.  For the last week I have been hanging out with dear friends at the End of the Earth, a.k.a. the Keweenaw Peninsula.

I attended graduate school at Michigan Technological University, in Houghton, MI, and it remains one of my favorite places.  It is filled with water, wildlife, forests, and people I love.  All good things.  Here, then, a sampling of images from the trip.

A lovely, restorative place.  More recipes soon…hope you are enjoying summer!
