One last Grand Marais piece: The symposium up there takes place in a bay. Just outside, along Lake Superior's south shore, you are allowed a view of one end of Picture Rocks National Sea Shore. The flat land in the foreground, it turns out, is a major nesting area for the piping plover.An interesting entry on the sign asks that kites not be flown in the area as the chicks may think them a predator and stop feeding.
I discovered the area when I climbed the dune behind out motel. I also discovered what had to have been one of the earliest attempts at using wind power to generate electricity.
