Vibrant Colors in the Afternoon !
Best time to view the color stained rocks. With the sun at a lower angle in the afternoon the colors come out with vibrant tones. Kayaking the shoreline along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is an experience that you will not want to miss. This is arguably the most beautiful shoreline in the United States, with crystal clear water in the largest freshwater lake in the world. Sandstone cliffs of beautiful reddish and orange hues rise vertically out of the shoreline nearly 200 ft. Ride the swells as you can hear the waves crashing into these rocks which carved beautiful caves, arches, and other natural formations that early explorers used for landmarks over 200 years ago. Paddle the same water as the Voyageurs, trappers, geologists, and Native Americans did as a resident population slowly came to the Upper Peninsula during the fur trading and exploration eras. You will see Miners Castle, Falcon Cove, Bridalveil Falls, the Painted Coves, Kissing Rock, a ship wreck, Caves of the Bloody Chiefs, Mosquito river and Lovers Leap Arch. A light dinner and snack are included, please bring your own beverages.
