Happy Earth Day in the Upper Peninsula

There are 148,939,100 square miles of land surface on Planet Earth…

42,610 of it belongs to the Upper Peninsula. That comes to 0.029% of all the Earth. And if you prefer fractions, that’s 13,449th of the Earth’s surface. We are just a speck.

The total surface area of Earth is 510,065,600 square kilometers. It’s a big place.

The Upper Peninsula is home to some very unique places on earth. I’ll refer you to Mississippi State’s website, where a group actually made the trekall the way to the Upper Peninsula to discover our unique geology.
