I was inspired by John's Sphinx Rock over at English Wilderness. Sometimes there are so many overwhelming things to see on hikes that I never get around to sharing some of them. Here's an example.
This great monolith is known as Magnetic Rock, and it is on the Border Route/ North Country Trail in Minnesota's Arrowhead. This is one instance where the Ham Lake fire of 2008 might be considered to provide a benefit. Previously, this rock was quite hidden among the tall trees of the forest. Now... well, you can see how it looks now! We were there just about a year ago, so I suppose I should qualify the "now," but no tall trees have grown up in a year.
Need some perspective on how big Magnetic Rock is? Try this.
We leave tomorrow morning! I'll try to post just before we go, and I've got some things scheduled, too.
