The beauty of the U.P. is no secret to those of us who live here, from breathtaking waterfalls to awe-inspiring nature and wildlife to the majestic views provided by Lake Superior.

U.P. residents know that they are living in one of the world’s best-kept secrets.

Photographer Shawn Malone of Lake Superior Photo shot a video that showed the rest of the world just what can be seen in the Upper Peninsula.

The video is called “North Country Dreamland.”

It is a six minute video featuring more than 10,000 photos of the Northern Lights and the Milky Way.  The video shows the galaxy and Aurora Borealis from several locations throughout the Upper Peninsula including Marquette, Copper Harbor, and the Pictured Rocks.
