Torch Lake

These are a few photos I took this past weekend in Torch Lake. I was fascinated by the color of the water. The water is always very blue and also clear. At some points it's 300 feet deep. There is a nice sandbar at the south end that people anchor at and then play in the ankle deep to knee deep water. For celebrity buffs, Eminem has a house on Torch Lake. It's huge, sorry no photos of that. The monument that's pictured is near the 45˚ parallel. Each county in the state of Michigan donated one stone to create it. It's right on the side of the road and easy to see.
