Superior's North Shore

After visiting Isle Royale, we explored the north shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota.
Our first stop was Grand Portage National Monument.

The monument consists of a replica of Fort Charlotte,
the trading post at Lake Superior near the 8.15 mile portage from the Pigeon River.

The monument is well worth a visit.
There are re-enactors and buildings as they were in the late 1700's.
 The north shore is characterized by rocky bluffs & cobblestone beaches.
There are plenty of hiking trails & skiing hills.
These are just a few of the many waterfalls that make up Cascade Falls.
Grand Marais harbor

Lots of fresh fish.
