Our Awe-Filled Kayak Trip Paddling Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Legendary Lake Superior
We connected with Pictured Rocks Kayaking for a five-mile kayaking tour at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on legendary Lake Superior. Our two-hour paddle treated us to spectacular water-level and close-up views -- plus some unique tunnel and cave paddling adventures -- just not possible from larger tour boats. We keep our narration to a minimum, allowing you to enjoy the bright colors and clear waters, courtesy of Mother Nature. The colored cliffs result from water leaching through porous limestone, carrying minerals. Iron creates the red and orange colors. The blues and greens come from copper. Manganese deposits account for the brown and black. The white is limonite. Can you do this tour? We're both 65-year olds in reasonable physical shape from biking, walking and on-and-off gym workouts. We’re also experienced gentle, flat-water kayakers. We had no problems, and neither did anyone else on our tour. For more, follow DeanLand on Newsbreak, and visit OurTravelCafe.com
