Project 52 - Week 6 - Entrance

This week's theme is Entrance which I had a hard time coming up  something.
Yes, I could have taken a picture of a door
But that seemed like it would be too easy and boring..
So I decided to take a picture of an entrance
To the towns of Houghton and Hancock
The Portage Lift Bridge.

Project 52 - Entrance 

The Portage Lift Bridge connected Hancock and Houghton, so is an entrance to either town depending on which way you are coming.  In the summer the bridge lifts up letting the boats go through the canal on their way to Lake Superior.

  1. Hi Marlys. Is this where you live? I wonder if I've crossed that bridge. Are there other bridges that connect the two towns? Several years ago my cousin and I travel up to Ahmeek to stay at the Sandhills Lighthouse B&B and I know we crossed a bridge at Houghton. Those lift bridges are so interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Barb, If you went to Ahmeek, this is the bridge you would have crossed... It is the only way to get to the Keweenaw... You would have also would have passed right past my house as you went to Sandhills Lighthouse. We live about 12 miles from the bridge on HWY 26.
