The Pictured Rocks

In the September 2012 issue of the locally published SW Michigan Spark, Steve Ellis calls Grand Marais, Michigan "one of the prettiest towns in the Midwest." I believe this claim is justified, even if the closest I ever got to this Lake Superior village was about 70 miles away from it. In looking at this 2012 Wayne State University publication about Michigan's Pictured Rocks and National Lakeshore, I received a good idea of what he was writing about. Although primarily a work of science and cataloged as such, this book is also appealing to a general audience in that it also includes some really spectacular photographs as well as a road log that directs the reader to some very beautiful scenery.

Great book. Originally from the midwest, it seems as though we don't get mentioned as tourist destinations because of scenery very much.
