A Day at Vermilion Point
After camping just east of Grand Marais, Renee and I headed for Vermilion Point, which is located east of Whitefish Point. We first tried to drive down a few of the two-tracks. We had a map that indicated that a few of the roads reached the beach. We were not successful, so we continued down to Vermilion. It was a beautiful day with a slight breeze and temperatures in the high 60s. There is not much slope to this beach so over the years the waves wash over the rocks to beach polish and flatten them. We call this a "cobble stone" beach. We didn't find any fisters but did find several small agates.
