|The Pictured Rocks rests along the Lake Superior shoreline and has a spanse of over 40 miles in length. The "pictures" that occur are caused by minerals in the rock. As they surface, different minerals cause various colors in the rock - hence the name. Many of the cliffs reach a height over 200 feet. Make sure to bring your camera!|
