Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Indian Head Rock, Miner's Castle

Field review by the editors.

Munising, Michigan

Craggy sandstone cliffs stretch for more than 40 miles along the south shore of Lake Superior, presenting a relatively unvisited panorama of shapes that invite labeling. There's Indian Head Rock, which has fallen out of official favor as insensitive; and Chapel Rock broke in two several decades ago, leaving it a kind of medieval ruin. Miner's Castle seems pretty stable -- but the great thing about Pictured Rocks is that most of them are still available to be immortalized by a catchy name that sticks. Pompeii Porcupine, Dinosaurs Playing Poker, Bunyan's Commode, the Great Stone Reagan... all are at least possible with the right interplay of light and shadow.
