Best Midwest Road Trips: Lake Superior Circle Tour
Kayak along cliffs
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Munising, Michigan Serious lake-lovers should consider a daylong kayak tour along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, 40 miles of dunes and mineral-stained cliffs--like tapestries interpreted in rock. Carl Hansen of Northern Waters Adventures leads trips past Miners Castle (left), one of the park's best-known formations, looming 100 feet above the water. Carl tells groups, "Everyone you see today, whether they're on the beach or on a tour boat, will wish they were in your boat."
