April Ice: Keweenaw

April Ice: Keweenaw

The Keweenaw Peninsula and
Keweenaw Bay in Lake Superior

For those unfamiliar, Keweenaw is pronounced KEE-wen-awe.




The name comes from Kee-wi-wai-non-ing, an Ojibwe word meaning “portage”, probably referring to the stream-crossing at what is now Houghton/Hancock.  The native Ojibwe called the peninsula itself Gakiiwe-onigamiing.

A geologic fault line runs lengthwise down the Keweenaw Peninsula, giving rise to cliffs. Brockway Mountain Drive was constructed along the cliff line, climbing to 720 feet above Lake Superior.
