On April 13th, 2006 the famous landscape of Miners Castle changed forever.

One of just two National Parks in the Upper Peninsula, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore attracts thousands of visitors year after year. Miners Castle has always been a favorite photos of tourists, photographers, and postcard photos.

After April 13th 2006…

Yours truly has not been to Miners Castle since taking on a face-life (or face-drop?) and have been curious to see how it looked before and after the fact.

Have you seen Miners Castle before and after?
