What’s the difference between agates and Thomsonite? Do you look for interesting rocks on every beach? Do you wonder about all those rock faces you see as you drive by on highway 61? Sugarloaf Cove is one of the best places on the North Shore to examine geology up close and personal. Join us to explore how Lake Superior got here, ponder the origins of a beach with some of the greatest diversity of rock types on the North Shore, and puzzle out lava flow features from top to bottom. There’s no better place for rock adventures. Meet at the Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center at 11:00 am, and make sure to wear sturdy shoes for exploration.
