The North Channel of Lake Huron
" Lake Huron runs largely north and south; the most northerly part of the lake was our destination. There, Manitoulin Island forms an east-west barrier, creating a fascinating strip of water for both deep-draft and shallow-water vessels. Any trees that grow on these dirt-starved islands all point downwind, so constant is the prevailing westerly wind. But what I had forgotten from previous visits to northern Ontario is the stunning beauty of the rocks! They dominate the landscape. They are bald, glacier- rounded, and come in many colors: white (quartz), red and pink (granite), and black, and more. Makes me hunger for a geology course. "
