very pretty areaHancock, MI is right across the canal from Houghton, MI. often they are smushed together when mentioned, though they are quite different small cities. i lived mostly in Houghton while i was up there, but for a few years i lived at the far and very uphill end of Hancock. it could be a very long walk in the middle of winter, but it usually did me some good. i eventually moved back to Houghton though when an attic became available.
