While hiking the shores of Lake Superior on my 1000-mile Great Lakes Hike, I explored a bit of the Keweenaw Peninsula.
Ben was along on this part of my adventure.
I enjoyed learning about the geology of this unique landmass. The peninsula is actually a syncline, the tilted edge of the earth's crust. Eons ago, this area bubbled with lava and the weight of that cooled magma depressed what would become the basin of the lake and the earth's crust tore and lifted at the edges.

I explore the geology of Lake Superior and its edges in my upcoming book:
A 1000-MILE GREAT LAKES WALK
The book will be released in 2013. Please "like" my Facebook Author Page in order to keep current on the release of the book and my speaking engagements.
