“These coasts are most delightful and wondrous … for Nature made it so pleasant to the eye, the spirit and the belly.”
Pierre Radisson, 1658

The above is from the Pictured Rocks timeline on Google. The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore entry on Wikipedia relates:

In October 1966, Congress passed a bill authorizing the establishment of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, “… in order to preserve for the benefit, inspiration, education, recreational use, and enjoyment of the public, a significant portion of the diminishing shoreline of the United States and its related geographic and scientific features.” When President Lyndon Johnson signed the bill, Alger County became the home of America’s first National Lakeshore.

This shot of the sandstone formation “Indian Head” was taken from the Pictured Rocks Cruises boat tour – a great way to see the many waterfalls, formations and sights of one of Michigan’s unquestioned jewels. More Pictured Rocks on Michigan in Pictures.
