Hanging over crystal-clear water, this cliff is a beautiful natural display of rock layers complemented by lush green trees that overlook the drifting summer kayaks in Lake Superior.

I took the image on the Lake Superior coastline along Lakeshore North Country Trail in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, just northeast of Chapel Hills Fall. To get there, you'll need a car.
Traveling toward Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, drive north along Chapel Road. You'll eventually reach Chapel Basin Parking Lot (46.519543, -86.461837). Park your car here and then turn right onto Lakeshore North Country trail.
After you pass through Chapel Rock, continue going northeast onto the trail (about .2 miles) and the destination will be on your left. Follow the GPS coordinates to reach the exact spot of where I took the photo — which is to the left of the main trail. Make sure to proceed with caution as you approach the cliffside since it can be rocky and unstable.
