Keweenaw Summer Scenes

The Keweenaw Peninsula is not always covered with snow. There is a local joke that the U.P. has two seasons: winter and the Fourth of July. However, this is not quite accurate. The warm season has been known to extend for several weeks, and the Fourth of July is not always warm. August is the only month during which measureable snow has never occurred, and twice since we have been here, the temperature on the Fourth of July was around 40 or 42. However, another joke insists that the Keweenaw does indeed have four seasons: early winter, winter, late winter, and next winter.
