ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Castle Rock, St. Ignace
Here's another familiar, best-loved attractions in Michigan - Castle Rock in St. Ignace.
Thanks to the Ice Age, this limestone tower was created when the land around it deteriorated from erosion, thanks to glacial melting. Years later, members of the Ojibwa tribe called this point "Pontiac's Lookout". Then, in 1928, this rock tower was purchased by C.C. Eby, who turned it into a tourist attraction.....and it has remained so ever since.
Castle Rock is 195 feet tall with a panoramic, 20-mile radius view at the top.
A gift shop is there with all sorts of crafts made by the local Native Americans almost 70 years ago.
It's a fun, quick, and awesome stop to make as you travel through Michigan. Check out the photos below, then go get some of your own! Ya gotta get a picture of Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, babe while you're there, right?
