2012/242: Log Slide Scenic Overlook
About 8 miles west of Grand Marais, Michigan is Log Slide Overlook, where in the late 19th century loggers used to slide logs down the steep slope into Lake Superior where they were loaded onto lumber schooners. There are outdoor exhibits along the trail to the overlook (none of which I photographed).
Once at the overlook, you can see Grand Sable Dunes to the east…
…and catch a glimpse of Au Sable Lightstation to the west. That’s as close as we got to this lighthouse.
