I am running out of superlatives on this trip. We made a fairly short drive yesterday from Tahquanemon Falls to Munising, Michigan. The big attraction here is Pictured Rocks State Park and a number of waterfalls. The Pictured Rocks are fourteen miles of incredible formations and rock colorations and are best viewed from the lake.
So we opted to take the sunset cruise last night. The sun was not in evidence much and probably would have made the colors even more dramatic, but we were not disappointed. The bluffs are over 150 feet high and are colored by ground water containing iron, copper, and other minerals leaching out of the rocks. The result is an amazing abstract painting.
The wind and the waves from Lake Superior have added their touch, creating caves, arches, and standing formations.
The Captain gave us an extra thrill when he pulled the 68-foot excursion boat into this formation known as the Chapel, and, even better, successfully backed it out again.
A tribute to determination was this stubborn tree atop a stone formation, surviving by roots that reached across to the bluff. Really amazing. Stupendous. Colossal. Awesome. There. I'm out of words.
Some random thoughts about writing, camping, and eating.
