Relaxing On the Shores of MarquetteMarquette Michigan

One of my favorite cities in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is the city of Marquette.

I had not been here in several years when I stopped here last week while checking on a Forest Inventory project we are working on North of here in the Huron Mountains.

On this day while others were hard at work in the woods, I took a break and watered the dogs in Lake Superior, admired the view, took a few pics, and spoke with a cute lifeguard who told the dogs they had to go as soon as they got a drink.

Fortunately I had one of those plastic bags in my pocket that city folks use to pick up dog deposits, since Drake displayed his displeasure by leaving a little gift behind. 

I did however do the environmentally responsible thing though and deposit the contents of the bag out in the forest later in the day. This fertilizer will not be put into a landfill where it will be wasted for the next million years; instead it is doing its part to fertilize an Aspen tree today.

 

 

 

Enjoy the pics and watch for more posts about some of the other things that I love about this city.

Maybe sometime in the future, I'll have the opportunity to visit the town of Marquette.  (Though, it won't be in the winter.)

That's a nice little beach at the lake.  I could use a cool dip in a lake today.  Congrats for fertilizing the forest instead of the landfill.

Hello Bob --- this post showcases why you rank this place as a favorite.  More than scenic---suitable for a postcard.
