    Footprints in the Sand

    This vintage photograph features the sandy shores and waves of Lake Superior, including Little Presque Isle, as seen north of Marquette in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Visiting this spot, you’ll likely have the beach to yourself, and, if surface temperatures are suitable in summer, the island can be explored by wading waist-deep through water.

    Thanks very much!
