Rockhounding is amateur geology - looking for interesting rocks and formations that illustrate part of the long history of our planet.  The exposed bedrock of the Superior lets a rockhound see parts of history that are buried deep beneath the surface on much of the rest of the planet.  Please look, but don't break apart rocks or rock formations during your explorations.
