Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Wisconsin
The sun sets over the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in this My Midwest photo submitted by gustafson5. The 22 Apostles fan out for almost 30 miles from the town of Bayfield, tempting visitors with 720 square miles of forests, caves, rocky outcrops and endless views. The islands, 21 of them protected as a national lakeshore, call to paddlers ready to take on Lake Superior's big water. But whether visitors go by ferry, sailboat or kayak, they find the Apostles are a destination for adventurers of all skill levels.
