We might be biased, but of all 50 states, we think Michigan is the most photogenic. No matter where you are in the mitten, you’re sure to find a beautiful setting sun, white-capped waves, or vibrant blooming flowers. This June, our Pure Michigan Instagram community ventured outdoors to find some captivating Pure Michigan moments. From blue skies to kayak rides, here are just a few of our favorites from June.

With digital cameras readily accessible, it’s easy to capture yourself in a Pure Michigan moment at almost anytime, anywhere! Last week, we asked our fans to share their best Pure Michigan ‘selfies’ with us, and we saw some awesome shots! From in front of the Mighty Mac to skimming the open waters of Lake Superior, there are so many scenic settings to snap a selfie in Michigan. Here are just a few of our favorites.
