After decades as a sand and gravel road then five years of construction, Alger County H-58 between Grand Marais and Munising was completely paved in 2010, creating one of the most beautiful drives in the Great Lakes region. The road has been engineered as a slow speed, scenic drive through the lakeshore, accessing such popular sites as Sable Falls, Log Slide, Hurricane River, and Twelvemile Beach.

Several species of plants in the Buttercup Family are aquatic, growing underwater in lakes and ponds. A few are even amphibious, meaning that a single plant lives partly on sand along a shoreline and partly submerged. Such plants have runners, like a strawberry plant, and grow roots along the runners. The submerged leaves appear quite different from the ones growing in air.
