Keweenaw Peninsula Bus Tour -- just beyond Copper Harbor is the very beginning of Route 41.

The sign reads: “The Beginning of US 41
Early Indian footpaths became the trails for explorers, missionaries and fur traders, who came to carve out homes in Michigan’s wilderness. The early settlers began to widen and improve these trails, which became the majority of Michigan’s primary road system. US 41 starts its southbound journey here, crossing eight states which include MI., WI., ILL., IND., KY., TN., GA. and ending in Miami, FL, a distance of 1990 miles.”
