About a mile out of the town of Marquette, Michigan in the U.P., there is a small mountain called Marquette Mountain that you can drive your car up to the top of.
We drove up one day and took some pictures of the town while the leaves were still in full color.
This view is looking out at the town of Marquette and a little west over the rolling hills:

The founding Fathers of the city of Marquette preserved that land for the people of the city for the future.
I am so glad they did! It has gorgeous views of Lake Superior from all three sides of the peninsula:
