North Shore
Wikipedia: The North Shore of Lake Superior runs from Duluth, Minnesota at the southwestern end of the lake, to Thunder Bay and Nipigon, Ontario in the north to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in the east. The shore is characterized by alternating rocky cliffs and cobblestone beaches, with forested hills and ridges through which scenic rivers and waterfalls descend as they flow to Lake Superior.
