I wanted to make sure everyone was aware that I’m making periodic updates on the Michigan in Pictures Facebook.
The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore shared this photo yesterday saying:
Is this sand pink? Yes it Is! The pink sand on the beach can be found on the northeast corner of Sand Point at the very end of Sand Point Rd. The pink sand is actually garnet that has eroded from one of the sandstone layers of the Pictured Rock cliffs. The garnet then washed up at Sand Point and makes a unique pink sand beach.
Gerlach Point is located east of Miner’s Beach in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
Lots more from Pictured Rocks on Michigan in Pictures!
May you have all the happiness
And luck that life can hold
And at the end of your rainbows
May you find a pot of gold.

A very happy St. Patrick’s Day and health & good fortune to you all!
Lots more St. Patrick’s Day on Michigan in Pictures!
Wilkinson Visual writes that this photo shows David Hixenbaugh scrapping up dairyland on a blustery day out on the lakeshore. Great climbing, very unique features formed by the wind making for an exciting top out!

Here’s climbing video from the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore by David (@alpine_elevation on Instagram):
Here's a little video I took of our HMR climb a couple weeks ago on Saturday. It was such a good day with @coltenintheoutdoors and @eolsenphoto! Yes I'm wearing my #blackdiamond stance belay parka haha! It was a bit chilly.. I feel so lucky to experience these things. Winter in the UP is amazing! I'm so stoked for #michiganicefest. #iceclimbing #michiganice #HMR #coldandiloveit #climb #up #puremichigan
Maybe if I looked at this view every day for 50 years I would get tired of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
