Pictured Rock

The limestone walls at Pictured Rocks

Soon we’ll be doing a full write-up on Pictured Rock (Munising Michigan) over at The Earth is Mine, but I was inspired to put this photo up today for the Twitter #FriFoto “Stone” theme.

This photo was taken from a boat at Pictured Rock Lakeshore in Munising Michigan. While the scale is hard to tell from this shot, the cliff itself was over a hundred feet tall. The colors are made when the water leaches the different minerals found throughout the rock face. Over time the minerals are washed down, usually in streaks. Occasionally the softer limestone will collapse and take away the outer layers, leaving a fresh wall to be repainted.
