Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Miners Castle Pictured Rocks (7)

The pictures from this post were taken at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on my drive along the northeast coast of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the fall 2014.  It was the same trip as the post on Miners Falls and Munising Falls.  The view was truly magnificent.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is an area along Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  The action of the water on the colorful sandstone cliffs has carved out a natural masterpiece.

The area I visited was the Miners Castle visitors center which affords the stunning view of Miners Castle rock formation and a long distance view of Grand Island and Bridalvail Falls.
