Miner’s Castle Formation, Munising, Michigan

This image is the last of three showing the Miner’s Castle rock formation as it looked before the rock fall of 2006 caused the loss of the right-most turret.

There is no description on the back of this card.

Now compare this image to the first one of the series. There is much more of the lower rock formation visible from the photographer’s viewpoint, but the large tree, which obscured this part of the view in both the previous pictures, is no longer an obstacle. Both the first and third images are taken from the exact same vantage point, so it has to be assumed that the tree was removed to improve the view, since if the photographer was in front of the tree, he would be at a lower elevation.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
