Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

Posted on Updated on

Copper Peak Ski Flying Hill in the upper peninsula of Michigan seemed like the perfect photo for this challenge. Not only is the structure itself big (the record distance for a ski jump at this facility is 518 feet), but the view of the valley below and its proximity to the largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior (not shown in the photo) is spectacular in its grandeur!

      If you are afraid of heights while on a structure that sways in the wind, it would be – luckily for me, I am not afraid of heights or precariously swaying structures 🙂 Just behind this view is Lake Superior…beautiful!

    That looks like a long way down and a very small landing area!

      Thank you so much! Really appreciate that since I kind of struggled with the color in this one 🙂

    I use to climb this old ski jump twice a week when I lived in Iron Mountain.. It is a beautiful location. Thank you for the amazing and beautiful photo.

      I absolutely loved it – it was my first experience on the ski jump, so I am really glad I did it justice to someone who knows it as well as you do. Thank you!

    Great place to visit in the fall. Can’t wait until they start skiing on the hill again.

      Yes, it is! Unfortunately, I did not make it there before peak colors, but it was still breathtaking. As the only ski fly hill in North America, I would love for it to be active again! Thanks for visiting!
