Breathtaking Beauty
from flickr user Riddhish Chakraborty
The photographer says: Pigeon River falls from almost 120’ high cliff creating the highest falls in MN State. It used to play pivotal role in lumbering business between Canada and The US in early 1900s. The river dives US and Canadian border - right side is Canada and left side is USA. This falls and the river stream together, was the natural means of transportation of wooden logs from Canada to The US side of Lake Superior. This is now history, but it maintains critical ecological balance of the region and attracts visitors to The Grand Portage State Park for its breathtaking beauty.
