Michigan isn’t exactly known for its caves, but maybe that’s because they’re quite a bit different from the underground rock formations found in states with more volcanic activity. That doesn’t mean we don’t have them. In fact, thanks to the sandstone cliffs found in places like Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, or the many, many caverns created by miners in the 19th century in Copper Country in the Upper Peninsula, we have many more caves than you might expect. They also come as dramatic ice formations, created along our lake shores during the winter months.
