Thank you for explaining "Kitchi-gami" - it helps for an understanding of the word and an appreciation of the means of travel and trade in former times. Beautiful, serene photo which is captured very well - congratulations!

We love Patrice's photos...this captures the rugged terrain that surrounds much of Lake Superior....the diminishing effect to the distant peninsula leaves to the imagination the vastness of this beautiful body of water. Congratulations, Pat!
