Nerve Racking & Adrenaline Pumping Fun – Pictographs

Nerve Racking & Adrenaline Pumping Fun – Pictographs

Agawa Rock Pictographs – Lake Superior

Getting to the pictographs is a challenge.

Don’t let the following discourage you, because once you get to see the pictographs and the landscape they are located in, its soooo worth it.

There are 2 challenges you’ll have to contend with.

The first is the trail itself. It consists of steep jagged rocks, tree roots, and at times narrow footing. It’s not a long trail, 0.5 km loop, but you do have to watch your footing.

The second challenge is at the end of the trail. This is where most people let their fear take over and don’t go any further. But if you want to see the pictographs, you’ll have to walk along the edge of the rock face while being very careful not to slip. If you slip… you’re sliding 15’ down the smooth & slick rock face, where you’ll be swimming in Lake Superior.

It’s a little nerve racking and adrenaline pumping fun!

Oh, and they only way to make this attempt is when Lake Superior is calm, otherwise forget it. The wrath of Lake Superior’s waves will take you out.

Rainbow Falls – Ontario

Rainbow Falls – Ontario

Definitely a must see!
Starting at the lake, a short walk on the boardwalk takes you down along Rainbow Falls, which can be viewed from various angles and heights.   What you don’t see in the photo to the left is that I’m standing right beside the top of the waterfalls.  


If you look closely at the photos, you’ll discover why it’s named “Rainbow” Falls. The various colours pop out at you from all over!


This area predominately sits on Red Granite, which the colours really come to life when wet.
