We recently took a trip to Northern Michigan, St. Ignace area. When I say northern Michigan, I mean WAY UP NORTH in Northern Michigan. We were probably about 30 minutes from the most northern part on the east side of the state, or as us Michiganders would say, we were in the bunny tail. I’ll talk more about that in another post.
Our weekend was pretty packed full of firsts and lots of adventure. One of the places we went to was Castle Rock, which is located in St. Ignace, Michigan.
What is Castle Rock? Castle Rock is said to be one of the oldest lookout points near the city of St. Ignace that was known as “Pontiac’s Lookout” by the Ojibwa Tribe. It was opened in 1929 as a tourist attraction that rises 195 feet above water level and about 183 feet above I-75. From the top of Castle Rock, you can see the surrounding areas, including Mackinac Island and Lake Huron! You can even take your picture with Paul Bunyan and Babe, his blue ox near the base of the rock. Something fun for all ages.
