Geocache Description:


Created in 1966, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan along Lake Superior has the distinction of being the first National Lakeshore ever created by Congress.

The Lakeshore consists of over 42 miles of shore covering 73,000 acres along the way. Paved roads enter the area on both ends, but anyone wishing to drive the entire length would have to do so on a county road.


Sites in the Lakeshore not only include the shore itself but a forest, lakes, waterfalls, sandstone cliffs and sand dunes. Colorful sandstone cliffs along the shore gave the area its name with their walls rising sometimes 200 feet above the lake level. The erosive effects of the water have created caves and other structures that are quick to foster the imagination in anyone.


Due to the Lakeshore’s proximity to Lake Superior, a few plants found in the region are more typically found in much colder climates. These include the Arctic crowberry and thimbleberry.


The Geocache Notification Form has been submitted to The Glacial Drumlin trail office in Lake Mills, of the Wisconsin DNR. Geocaches placed on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource managed lands require permission by means of a notification form. Please print out a paper copy of the notification form, fill in all required information, then submit it to the land manager. The DNR Notification form and land manager information can be obtained at: http://www.wi-geocaching.com/hiding
