Point Abbaye in the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan

One of the pristine places on Lake Superior is close to a little town in the U.P.

It is called Point Abbaye.
We had a very unusual week of very hot October temperatures and happened to have company
with us for five days.

We immediately thought of taking them there, because we knew the autumn leaves were still up and the rocks and scenary would be delightful there.

Today, I have some pictures to share with you of our trip to this lake wonderland.

The rocks on the shore here are volcanic looking. Rugged and full of lichen and sharp design:
The shale under the water are amazing shades of greens, oranges and yellows too.

As an added bonus, you can look out and see the Huron Islands in the distance:

The islands look close enough to swim to, but believe me, they are not!:
There is supposed to be a lighthouse on one of the Huron Islands, and someday I am going to find someone with a "seaworthy" boat to take me there to take pictures. See this LINK.

To think that Mother Nature painted all these rocks on Lake Superior. They are amazing!:

We were incredibly lucky. The day we were there it was sunny, warm, colorful
and best of all? =
NO ONE else was there.
No one.
We had the solitude of the crashing waves and natural beauty all to ourselves.
It was heaven.

Come visit me, I will take you there.....

Upper Michigan looks suspiciously like the Minnesota side of the North shore. Always beautiful.

You were so lucky to have such a beautiful place all to yourselves. The colors in the water and the changing leaves on shore are both very beautiful.
