WHERE: Ironwood, Michigan – the western side of the U.P.
WHEN: Actually I think everyone else in my family has been here before. Cindy actually camped on the beach under the stars as a camp “field trip” when she was a kid. But for some reason, I never got here before.
WHAT: A beautiful beach stretching along Lake Superior at the mouth of the Black River. Even though some of the pictures of the water looks as if it’s polluted, that’s actually pollen and only covers a couple feet of water along the beach.
KID FACTOR: Lots of kids around this beach. Lots of families. (No lifeguards, though.) But a beautiful site.
