We did the magnetic rock hike this past summer with our granddaughter.† It was a fun hike, but I will confess I was tired at the end when we got back to our car.† Anna had a great time!

The rock is interesting.  When you put your compass near it the needle goes all wonky.

Fabulous photo Lynda!† I went there last Spring. Iím amazed at what geologic forces upended that rock. Most likely a glacier. Also, I collected samples of Gunflint iron formation that were disturbed by a tsunami caused by the Sudbury meteor impact 1.86 billion years ago. Itís a unique location.

I can't take much credit for the photo.  There were a couple other people there, and Anna just handed her camera to one of them and they took a picture of the three of us.  God provided the blue sky and the rock was just standing there.  Couldn't get Anna to take off her head net--the mosquitoes were brutal.

  I can appreciate that. One of the big reasons I go solo. I don't mind the cold. I worked commercial construction for 15 yrs. Rarely missed work in the winter months. Do you fish on your trips?
