The rocky shoreline and the blue waters of the lake meet in tumbled chaos at the north shore. The coast is evidence of long-ago volcanic activity, and every few miles it seems another river or creek runs channels, often small gorges, through the rock to flow into the lake. There are many waterfalls, of which we caught only glimpses due to rain, and some fall straight into Superior over small cliffs. We are told whitewater kayakers will sometimes ride the rivers and the falls, as well.
To end, a quote:
But every one of us are descended from the restless ones, the wayward ones who were not content to stay at home.
