Pictured (not Painted) Rocks (they looked painted!)

We Took the Painted Rocks Boat Cruise, fun! It was foggy at first, but we broke out into the sun! YAY! What spectacular views of the colorful cliffs and bluffs! This tour began in Munising, up in the northern edge of the UP. The lighthouse (East Channel Light) was hard to see in the fog, but was of an old shingled and clapboard construction and very interesting. 7/18/08.

(You can see my newest vacation art sketch here. It's a gull with a blue crab claw from Lake Michigan.)

As usual, you can enlarge the pictures by clicking on them.

Wow. I don't remember seeing anything this special on our way to Copper Harbor, years ago. I thought it was Native American rock carving or painting when I saw the pics on the portal.

Have a nice weekend.

Wow! If you weren't in Michigan, I'd have guessed this was in the desert Southwest. What a beautiful landscape!

Great photos, just found your site. My husband is a Michigander (Hamtramck) and we usually visit from Texas at Christmas, great to see the state when it's not covered in snow. I love you lakes there, so clean, i will not swim in the man made lakes in Texas :-)
