Winter is starting to get me down a little. I want some sunshine! I'm tired of things being dull and cold and grey. Thinking of sunshine has me thinking of Summer adventures and things to come. I'm missing my daughter a bit and already planning on when to go visit her - an adventure in itself as I haven't ever been on an American train.
Anyway, this Five on Friday I thought I'd share some photos from one of my favourite places in Michigan (so far lol). Pictured Rocks and five facts.
It's a National Lakeshore up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and is 42 miles long.
It gets its name from the 15 miles of sandstone rocks northeast of Munising.
The cliffs are up to 200 feet above sea level.
They have been naturally sculptured into shallow caves
This one is called Indian Head
The US congress made Pictured Rocks the first National Lakeshore in the states in 1966.
It's a really beautiful place to visit. The first time we were up there was one year when my Mum came to visit. As well as the beautiful lakeshore the area around boasts sixteen different waterfalls to explore! Some are accessible on the roadside others require a hike. We've seen most of them now - another story for another day!
Just looking at the sunshine and the blue lake waters make me feel a little brighter! Hope you do too!
