Land of Nipigon
The Land of Nipigon has a long and varied geological past. From meteor strikes to a failed ocean. Arid desert to being buried under a mile of ice. The geological history of this part of the Canadian shield is unique and view-able in the rocks and Lake Superior itself.
Lake Superior, the spectacular cliffs and cuestas on the north shore, amethyst and even agates are all from a specific point around 1 billion years ago when an ocean tried to form, and failed forming a rift valley.
Widely settled by native Ojibwa first nations following the last ice age, the Land of Nipigon, eastern settlers were first drawn to the fur trade in the area in the late 1600’s. The lakes rivers and waterways were the highways they traveled into the Continent.
Highways and paved roads are a relatively new (1960’s) idea to the region and its vast relatively untouched boreal forest is a testament to the wildness of the region.
