There’s A Little Known Unique Cave In Michigan… And It’s Truly Enchanting
Most of us are well familiar with Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the UP’s Munising area. Featuring sandstone cliffs, beaches, dunes, waterfalls, forest, and some 40 miles of shoreline, the space sits alongside Lake Superior. Travelers come here for hiking, camping, sightseeing, and most notably, kayaking.
What you may or may not be familiar with are the many caves that sit right on the water – caves that take us to another world. One such area, accessible only by kayak, is on the water level of Miner’s Castle. Erosion over great stretches of time has created the truly unique look of these rock formations, something to truly behold.
