Pictured Rocks Popular Overlook Shut Down in Northern Michigan
A popular overlook at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the UP is closed.
National Lakeshore announced the closure recently at Log Slide Overlook after the viewing platform slid about 100 feet down a sand dune. The park says things like heavy snow, ice, erosion and sand deposits are to blame. The overlook once offered great views from the Grand Sable Dunes.
WNEM is reporting that the park plans to move the overlook's walkway away from the edge and rebuilding a viewing platform are in the works.
If you have never been to Pictured Rocks in our Upper Peninsula, it is worth the drive up there. I can't think of anything more beautiful or relaxing.
