As the story goes , a young woman sat atop the cliff, eagerly awaiting the return of her lover. Each day she trained her eyes on the horizon looking for any of him. As they approached and became larger, she recognized them as the war canoes of her tribesmen. Her heart jumped in her chest with joy! But as the boats came within earshot of the young woman, she heard a chant rising from the men — a song of lament for the dead.
Desperately, she scanned the canoes for the man she would marry. Slowly, she was gripped by the realization that the one who had died was hers. Crashing waves washed softer rock and soil away, leaving a spire of limestone in their wake. It also represents the mythical charm that makes Mackinac Island such a romantic place. The most iconic natural feature on Mackinac Island is Arch Rock. The limestone was hollowed out eons ago by Lake Huron, which now sits some feet below and presents a picturesque backdrop of bright blue water framed by the foot-wide arch.
Native American legends view Arch Rock as a bridge to the afterlife — or, as a bridge for the spirits to descend upon earth. Sugar Loaf is a limestone stack rising 75 feet out of the middle of Mackinac Island. From nearby Point Lookout, the rock surrounded by green forest with blue waters in the distance makes for an incredible photo op.
But the inside of the cave really is blackened with soot as if from a fire. These are just a few of the legendary sites on Mackinac Island that make for fantastic selfie spots. Check out all of them on a visit to Mackinac Island this year! Published on February 12th, As the story goes , a young woman sat atop the cliff, eagerly awaiting the return of her lover.
