Lake Superior Witch Tree

Lake Superior was named by French voyageurs. They gave it the name superior since it is the farthest north of the Great Lakes. A French explorer noted this gnarled tree making it at least 300 years old. The Ojibwa indians call the tree Manido Gizhigance or little cedar spirit tree.
