Visitor Tips and News About The Snow Stick
We had the pleasure of seeing the huge Snow Stick on one of the warmest weekends of the year - July 4! In addition to the cool park behind the "Stick," the thoughts of the 390 inches of snow helped to cool us off. In Snow Thermometer Park, US 41 four miles north of Mohawk, which is a small town north of the village of Calumet.
When in the area, be sure to visit the Poorrock Abbey jam shop in Eagle Harbor and pick up some delicious, unusual jam.[John Holmes, 09/08/2008]
Snow Gauge aka Snow Stick
North of Calumet, the Snow Gauge, aka the Snow Stick, measures the snow fall each year, over 30 feet! Once you visit that, keep going on the highway up to Copper Harbor and check out Brockway Mountain Drive -- it's beautiful! Last time we took that drive we saw a black bear and several deer, so drive slowly.[Jessica Jamison, 07/22/2005]
