The Mackinac Bridge
Cross the Mackinac Bridge, often referred to by Michigangers as "The Big Mac" or "Mighty Mac." The bridge is a five mile suspension bridge, spanning the Straits of Mackinac, connecting Michigan's lower and upper peninsulas. You can drive across the bridge or if you are really adventurous, you can walk across in on Labor Day.
Nestled in the wooded terrain on Indian Lake near Manistique, a community stretching across two miles of northern Lake Michigan, is this precious little cabin.
Indian Lake covers 8,400 acres, it is the fourth largest inland lake on Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
This area is a haven for quiet, peaceful, beautiful rest and relaxation.
The National Lakeshore extends for 42 miles along the shore of Lake Superior and covers 73,236 acres. The park has extensive views of the hilly shoreline between Munising and Grand Maris, with picturesque rock formations, waterfalls, and sand dunes.
You can hop on a boat in Munising and view the rock formation from the waters of Lake Superior. Pictured Rocks derives its name from the 15 miles of colorful sandstone cliffs northeast of Munising. The cliffs reach up to 200 feet above lake level.
Enjoy the scenery below. What do you see in the formation of the minerals that have seeped from the rocks? Use your imagination to see buildings, towns, animails, forests, etc..
