MUNISING, Mich. – A kayaker on a tour of Pictured Rock's National Lakeshore in northern Michigan escaped narrow damage when a large portion of the cliff collapsed near them in Lake Superior.

WLUC-TV reports the kayakers were in an area where sandstone cliffs stand up to about 61 feet above the water.

Van Ouellette-Ballas of Northern Waters Adventures, one of the guides, says that smaller stones had fallen near the group Monday before the massive section fell. He says they "thought we were at a safe distance" and paddled away when the big collapse missed them by about 15 meters.

MLive.com reports that nature photographers Jon Smithers and Craig Blacklock were on a boat and Smithers turned a drone against the sound of the collapse in time to record video of it.
