Bare Bluff

Bare Bluff by dcclark

The view from the top of Bare Bluff, a massive outcropping of Rhyolite (a pink mineral, hence the wacky rock colors) which is very very close to the shore of Lake Superior. It's also a Michigan Nature Association sanctuary. This bluff is amazingly remote, too, requiring a long-ish drive on rough logging roads, followed by a hike through some of the steepest and worst-maintained trails I've seen! But it's all worth it, especially for this view straight towards the tip of Keweenaw Point.

This is often misnamed "Bear Bluff" -- sure, there are bears around, but its correct name is Bare Bluff.
