Summer Vacation - Behind The Awkwardness

“That’s me and my cousin Alex at the age of about 8 years old at the Marquette Ore Mine. This photo was taken on one of our many summer visits to my grandmother’s home in Michigan.  Poor Grandma was running out of fun activities for us to do during these long summer visits.”

    I worked there for a couple of summers, my dad retired from there in 2005. The tours are school busses filled with visitors, they run all summer. Awesome pic! Looks like you two had a grand old time, haha!

    Awesome outfits & expressions!
    (Just curious–I’m a Marquette native. Where was the Marquette Ore Mine? Do you mean the iron ore plant near Presque Isle? Or maybe the mine in Negaunee?)
