We are fortunate to witness breathtaking sunrises and sunsets all year round in Pure Michigan. Last winter, we asked our Facebook fans to submit photos of winter sunrises and sunsets they had captured around the state. We were so blown away by their stunning submissions, that we asked to see the unique and captivating photos they’ve captured this season. Check out the gallery below from our Pure Michigan Flickr page.

Did you know that there are more than 200 waterfalls in Michigan? Many of these are located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and are a beautiful sight to behold in any season. When the temperature drops during the deep winter months, the free-flowing falls freeze over and transform into magnificent winter wonders.
Michigan visitors and residents alike venture out to feast their eyes on these natural beauties (and if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even learn how to ice climb one!). Some of these spectacular sights are relatively easy to access. Others require snowshoes, skis or a snowmobile. Find out how to access the frozen waterfall nearest you here.
In Michigan, you’re never more than six miles away from a natural water source. Why not take a day trip to marvel at Michigan’s frozen falls? For inspiration, here are eight fantastic photos of frozen Michigan waterfalls captured by our fans and other talented photographers around the state.
