Isle Royale National Park

Imagine walking a mile long trail and after every 'not-so-many' steps you encounter a little alcove in the surrounding trees in which another sculpture resides. And wondering what you'll see next. Something humorous perhaps, something serious, or something god knows what. And then there are the grounds, scattered with little gardens and other sculptures. And a childrens' play area with many other, more whimsical sculptures. The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is a very interesting place!
