Summary AuthorMatthew L. Schuchardt; Chloe Cook 

Pictured above is Arch Rock on Mackinac Island, Michigan. Arch Rock is a natural limestone/breccia formation on the shoreline of Lake Huron, standing 146 ft (45 m) above the lake level. It's believed to have formed about 5,000 years ago during the Nipissing stage of high water levels on Lake Huron. Limestone/breccia formations are rather unusual in the Great Lakes region, although the arch is one of several such formations on Mackinac Island -- others include Sugar Loaf and Skull CaveNorthern white cedars (Thuja occidentalis) have taken hold in the rocky crevasses below the arch.
