Girl Scouts go on seakayaking adventure
Local Girl Scouts traveled to the Apostle Islands over the weekend, camping, hiking and seakayaking in the national park on Lake Superior's southern shore. From left, Natalie Harvey, Maeve Bolton, Nora Bolton and Clara Buchner pause for a group photo on their way to watch the sunset. They joined about 30 other Girl Scouts from Minnesota and Wisconsin on the four-day trip. They ventured into the mainland sea cave known as "The Crevasse," paddling three-person seakayaks. Centuries of wave action, freezing and thawing have sculpted the sandstone shorelines throughout the Apostle Islands. The Park Rapids troop also passed through "The Keystone" cave. Visitors are drawn to the national park's 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland for its unique natural resources.
