    Throughout my life, I’ve travelled many places in the United States, and I’ve never seen anything as unique as Pictured Rocks – put simply, it is my favorite National Park. The ancient rock strata of the cliffs are otherworldly in terms of texture & color (entirely different than the Painted Desert/southwest), and the incredibly clear turquoise & emerald waters of Superior look like something out of the tropics on a sunny day, especially with its waves lapping the gorgeous white sand beaches of the area. And yet there you are…above the 45th parallel in the northern US…camping & hiking miles of coastal trails in beautiful & richly-scented dense northern forests of sugar, stripped, and red maple, beech, yellow birch, hemlock, spruce, tamarack, alder, and white cedar, as you pass enchanting waterfalls, wild blueberry bushes, countless wildflowers (some rather rare), and even incredibly out-of-place arctic crowberry & dwarf raspberry plants along the way as well. Go here. It’s amazing.

    Truly a hidden gem. Over July 4th weekend there were hardly any crowds and the weather and scenery was just phenomenal.

    Great scenic view of various rock formations from cruise. It will be cold. So, dress appropriately.

    Amazing views. Few visitors and plenty of great hikes. Just plan on going later in the summer since we went camping in early June and the temp dropped below 20 degrees at night.

    Very rugged , strikingly beautiful, and largely inaccessible. Be prepared to spend some time here and put some miles on your legs if you really want to see it. Of the places relatively easy to access by car, my favorites were Sable Falls and the Au Sable Lighthouse.
