News From Mikel: 3/26/2021 – A Spring is finally here and the snow is leaving quickly. Couldn’t happen any sooner for me. Anyway, I’ve been spending lots of time uploading new things to this site. There is a new article under “Feature articles” that takes the reader back to the first days of Marquette, the Upper Peninsula’s largest city. It is told through the voice of one of Marquette’s original founders, “Peter White.” It is filled with the dangers of survival on the Lake Superior frontier, that is riviting told by one that was a part of it. I doesn’t get any better. Also there are new blogs with historical pictures and some with adventures of today. If you like the photography, there are galleries I’ve been working on and more are coming! Stay tuned and keep checking in.
