Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore wall of rock

Millions of years of layered rock give us a glimpse into the glacial past of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

In sorting through some of my archives, I found a couple of images from a trip up to Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on the southern shore of Lake Superior near Munising.    I have already processed many images from this particular trip, but found a couple that really speak to a theme that is part of what makes this place so special.    These high cliff walls have millions of years of history written all over them.   Being next to them, not only are you insignificant in size, but also as part of time.

It really makes me want to go back up there soon.
