Popular Sea Stack Crumbles in Storm

Created: December 02, 2019 04:14 PM

One of the North Shores most photographed landmarks is no more. This weekend's blizzard forced many of us to stay home as snow, winds and waves pummeled the Northland. The strong waves of Lake Superior toppled the iconic sea stack at Tettegouche State Park. 


The sea stack was once part of a stone arch connecting it to the mainland. The arch broke off in 2010, but the stack stood tall for another 9 years. Waves would crash against the pillar creating beautiful ice sculpures in winter.

This is a sad loss for the State Park and the North Shore. The sea stack was a popular spot for many tourists and photographers. Tettegouche State Park is approximately 5 miles north of Silver Bay on Highway 61.
