Michigan UP - Abandoned Iron Mine

A few pics from our weekend scoot through some of the UP's abandoned iron mine country.

These tailings ponds were created from the waste water and black iron ore silt. The view is from a manmade leve in the middle of the ponds.

Looks good.. in the future, if you can link larger pics, it would save time on clicking and loading your pics in a second window.

If you have a Garmin GPS, I have mapped almost the entire area on OpenStreetMaps.
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=45...om=12&layers=M

I don't know of any other map that has all the trails that I have traced in. This map contains many hours tracing USGS, Googlemaps, Yahoo Maps, Satelite maps. Plus my own GPS track files.

You can upload OpenStreetMaps directly to your Garmin.
For more info just email me.
