There are the Palisades on Seagull Lake, which just means really steep cliffs that are cool to view from the water.

The whole area has been burned over in the last 3 years or so, so the starkness of things makes for some great photos. Also with a lot of large vegetation mission you can see some things that have been hidden by trees for years and are exposed now. We found lots of little artifacts along the portages now that all the brush is gone.

Stay on the north side of seagull if you want to see forest - south side is has burned three times in ten years.

I was up there a few years back. Before the burn the area was awesome for blueberries. It should be better for berries following the burn.

Also I just got back from the Grand Marais/Gunflint Trail area. The locals say the blue berries are about 2 weeks behind normal. So you should be there just in time. Nothing like fresh blue berries.

I was at the trails end access yesterday just sight seeing and it looked beautifull and not burnt there. I can imagine that it was probly burnt in other areas of seagull though.
