Beautiful Turnip Rock

Lake Huron is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and the third largest fresh water lake on the planet. Geologically, it comprises the larger portion of Lake Michigan-Huron. It is bounded on the east by the Canadian province of Ontario and on the west by the state of Michigan in the United States.

Like the other Great Lakes, it was formed by melting ice as the continental glaciers retreated toward the end of the last ice age. The lake bed was criss-crossed by a large network of tributaries to now long-buried waterways.

One of the little-known wonders of Lake Huron, this peculiarly shaped rock, known locally as the “Turnip Rock”. Its mushroom shape is due to the tidal erosion that has occurred over millions of years. The only way to reach to this beautiful and amazing piece of nature is by boat or kayak. Of course in the winter season the whole lake is frozen so it may be possible to walk across the lake to get to the rock.
