layer-mackinac-cross Along what is both the longest and the shortest roadway in the state of Michigan, the 8 mile perimeter road of Mackinac Island, the beaches are lined with shallow, rocky waters.  On the east shore, looking out over Lake Huron, passerbys on their bicycles and horse carriages have made a habit out of stacking these stones in order to leave their own mark on the landscape. One of the more remarkable ones I have seen in three years, however, was this cross made from layered stones and driftwood.  While the iconography doesn’t mean too much to me, this rather large construct was an interesting symbol leading out into the Great Lakes.
