Tettegouche arch trivia
It's the biggest news from the North Shore since that incident at Glensheen. The arch at Tettegouche State Park fell last week. The story has been picked up by websites and newspapers across the Midwest.
Here's a few tidbits you can throw into your conversations at the water cooler or the espresso bar to show your North Shore knowledge:
*** The arch was never formally named. The only Minnesota North Shore arch with an official US Geological Society name is Hollow Rock, up in Grand Portage.
*** You could paddle a sea kayak under the arch:
*** There are still other similar arches on the North Shore, including at Hollow Rock and on private land in the Little Marais area. The most famous North Shore arch is the Sea Lion, up in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.
The North Shore is full of natural wonders...enjoy what we've got while it's here!
