I know how Paradise has to look like, I have pictured it in my mind a thousand times when I was a little girl.
All the beauty of nature combined, that was the most perfect place I could imagine. Water as blue as the Grotta Azzurra, white sand, hills, and mountains to climb. There was no question in my mind, it was a quiet place, a place where I could run and jump, hike or swim whenever I wanted to.
Now, 50 years older, but the still the little girl at heart, I finally found it. While my beliefs have changed, my search for the “perfect” places has always continued.
The untouched beauty of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is known for its dramatic rock cliffs. With summer coming to an end, it was the perfect place to go before the winter chills.
Unusual sandstone formations like Miners Castle or Chapel Rock are only two of the parks many attractions.
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore hugs the south shore of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It’s an untouched beauty that took my breath away.
It is worth the drive. The pictures are burned into my mind and will stay with me for a very long time.
Now winter can come.
