Explore a rugged, isolated island, far from the sights and sounds of civilization. Surrounded by Lake Superior, Isle Royale National Park in Michigan offers unparalleled solitude and adventures for backpackers, hikers, boaters, kayakers, canoeists and scuba divers. The autumn colors are pretty amazing there right now, but you only have a couple more weeks to see them. The park closes every year from November 1-April 15 because of extreme weather conditions and for visitor safety. Photo by Jacob W. Frank, National Park Service.

In the calm of Chippewa Harbor at Isle Royale National Park in Michigan, the waters of Lake Superior look more like a bathtub than the largest lake in the country. The park occupies the entire 40-mile-long island, offering excellent hiking, boating and incredible views of the lake. Put it on your summer bucketlist! Photo courtesy of Kaitlin Knick.

Colorful and bold, the sandstone cliffs at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan tower 50-200 feet directly above the dynamic waters of Lake Superior. Wind and water carved the stone into unique shapes. Chapel Rock is a favorite destination for visitors, who enjoy the nearby beach and taking photos of this interesting formation topped by a tree.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is an autumn paradise. 🍂🍁 With some 90 miles of trails at this Michigan destination that is  located along Lake Superior’s south shore, there is a hike for you. As you stroll through the woods, take in the quiet sounds of the forest and the warm sunlight filtering through the golden leaves – it’ll renew your mind and body.
