“Above the Forest”

I love to go to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula at least once a year. Actually I would love to live up there. It’s truly a wonderful place to be.

I’ve traveled all over the UP, but this image is from just on the outskirts of Saint Ignace, which is the first town you come to after you cross the Mackinac Bridge.

It doesn’t matter what time of year I go. I always have to make a visit to Castle Rock. An historic place with a great view of extensive forests and Lake Huron depending on the direction you’re looking in.

For all photographers and historians make sure you take the time to talk with the family that owns and has operated it for so many years. The walls in the gift shop are filled with wonderful historical images from the humble beginnings of Castle Rock and the family that kept it going from the start till the present day.

A definite treat for everyone, not to mention children who need to run off their energy by climbing the many stairs to reach the top!

Enjoy the view!

The Beauty of the Upper Peninsula!

  1. Yes, this is a beutiful picture Rachel. My wife (a Michigan girl) and I love the U.P. so much that we bought 15 acres of woodlands in the Keweenaw Penninsula. Don’t know if we could live up there full time though. As of this date they still have 4 feet of snow on the ground.

    1. Thanks very much!! Wow, nice! I hope to have a place up there some time too! I’ve been watching the weather, and could see there has still been snow activity there! Winter’s do last a long time!! Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂
