We couldn’t help but share @mdotpicoftheday’s photo taken high atop the Mackinac Bridge. It’s not everyday you get to take in a view as astounding as this one!
Instagrammer @shaleewanders captured this photo at the Grand Island ice caves in the Upper Peninsula, face to face with some truly larger than life icicles.
The Northern Lights were recently visible all across Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. This unbelievable capture comes from @nivenlife in Port Austin.
A late winter sunrise slowly melted away the ice on Lake St. Clair. Instagram fan @faresksebati helped us get ready to give spring a warm Pure Michigan welcome with this early morning scene.
When the first day of spring arrived, we anxiously awaited the springtime bloom with this photo of colorful tulips captured at last year’s Tulip Time Festival in Holland, MI.
