Pidgeon River Falls

Pidgeon River Falls (this is high falls in particular - not to be confused with Middlee falls) is another example of the impact of Diabase intrustions in the otherwise mostly sedimentry geology of NW Ontario and Northern Minasota. The diabase is pretty resistant to erosion, while the underlying sedimentry rock isn't. Thus... a whole lot of falls that look like this.

Today was a day tripping down the 61. It rained half the day, but I was able to do some hiking in the morning. Then I hung out at the Grand Portage Museum for a while until the sky opened up... then I headed to Grand Marais where I poked around a bunch of touristy shops and then had supper at Sven and Oli's Pizza.
