Isle Royale in Lake Superior

Isle Royale is an island in Lake Superior where no cars are allowed. Unlike Mackinac Island, you will not find horse drawn carriages. There are hiking trails that wind through thimbleberries that taste like none other types, and there are wolves and moose that have been studied for many years. You may see and hear the moose, but the wolves are very elusive and it's unlikey you will see a wolf.

This is the place where the endemic fish, the redfin lake trout spawn in the rocks offshore. The semi-precious greenstone is found on the island and places where ancient Native Americans mined copper.

It is a National Park that is reached by ferry or small planes.

Read more about the Great Lakes and their special places in my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes, available at Barnes & Noble and many other online stores.
