That's My World - Alpena

This is my third "That's My World" contribution. To see more "That's My World" photos from around the world, or to become involved and share your little part of the world, please click on the That's My World button above.

Alpena is a port city located on Thunder Bay, which is part of Lake Huron. Shown above is the Thunder Bay River. You can see that some teenage boys are enjoying a swim. Of course, I took these photos back in July, when it was still warm enough to swim there. The building you see in the background is used to manufacture wood paneling. Whenever you drive by here, you can smell the wood in the air.

This is where the Thunder Bay River empties into Lake Huron.

Not quite sure what this building is, but I thought the mural was neat. The building backs up to the Thunder Bay River.

This is the Alpena National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office and is part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Midwest Region. Some of the things they do here include research and restoration of fish and wildlife habitat of the Great Lakes.

Thankyou for a quick tour of your world!

I have been to Ann Arbor, which was very pretty too! Though I didn't get to any of the lakes..I was with my daughter on one of her work trips.

Cool post and beautiful pictures. I've heard of Thunder Bay before, but never really knew where it was.
