Where Is the Keweenaw Peninsula?

Michigan's Upper Peninsula (the "U.P.") is connected by land to northern Wisconsin. It is connected to Michigan's Lower Peninsula only by the Mackinaw Bridge. Those living in the U.P. are called "UPpers," pronounced and usually spelled "Yoopers." The Keweenaw Peninsula is a small finger of land about 50 miles long that extends northward out into Lake Superior from Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Due to the man-made Portage Canal through Houghton and Hancock, the Keweenaw Peninsula can be reached by land only by the Portage Bridge. We live on the "wild" north shore where you see the red dot about halfway between Calumet and Copper Harbor.
