Porcupines & Pictured Rocks

Finally heading back toward home, 
we drove through the upper pennisula of Michigan.

A really neat place to stop is Porcupine Mountain State Park.
The park is designated as a wilderness
 and has over 31,000 acres of old growth northern forest.

No visit to the "Porkies" is complete until you see the Lake of the Clouds.
On our stop, it truly was in the clouds.

Our final stop was Pictures Rocks National Lakeshore.
Its a 15 mile stretch of colorful sandstone cliffs
 towering over the southern shore of Lake Superior.

This is Sable Falls tumbling over the sandstone on its way to Lake Superior.

  The beaches are delightful with all the water sculpted rocks.

 That concludes a great vacation Up North!
