DC-Gills Rock Sunset - 52-Edit

Gils Rock is a small village near the tip of Door County. Door County is the peninsula that juts out into Lake Michigan. It is a popular vacation area and is one of Wisconsin’s 11 coastal counties. Few people would think of Wisconsin as a coastal state since it lies squarely in the middle of North America. However, Wisconsin has more than 800 miles (1,300 kilometers) of Great Lakes coastline and nearly 200 miles (325 kilometers) of Mississippi River shoreline along its boundaries. Wisconsin also has more than 15,000 lakes and 13,500 miles (21,700 kilometers) of navigable streams and rivers. In fact almost 3% of Wisconsin’s surface area, nearly a million acres, is lakes.
