Pictured Rocks

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is located on the shore of lake SUPERIOR  in the Upper Peninsula of the state of Michigan. Multicolored sandstone cliffs for which the lakeshore is named, reach to a height of 200 feet ( 60 m )  above the lake and extend more than 12 of the 42 miles of shoreline within lakeshore boundaries.

The colors in the cliffs are created by the large amounts of minerals in the rock and the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is an ongoing work of art created by Mother Nature with the help of wind, lake water, rain, snow, lightning, and hail - the rocks are eroded and sculpted into their current forms. 

The area is within the second-most cloudy region of the United States which results in rain, fog and snow.

There are seven named waterfalls within Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, plus several unnamed falls.

Interesting Fact: 

In November 2010, the musician Kid Rock released his "Born Free" music video. The cliffs, beach, and lake views were shot at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in mid October 2010.
