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.
