Description

Mackinac Island is a sort of turn-of-the century time capsule, with Victorian cottages and costumed guides. Automobiles are banned and all sight must be visited by foot. There are numerous small caves which are of little speleologic interest, like Skull Cave, Crack in the Island, Cave of the Woods, Fairy Kitchen, or Devils Kitchen. Probably the main sight, at least the most featured one, is Arch Rock, a huge natural bridge which was formed by the collapse of a karst cave.
