Virginia Off The Beaten Path
Laurentian Divide...its just...
Laurentian Divide...its just off Hwy 53 going North out of Virginia. It has lots of trails to go walking around & see the beauty of the northwoods. Lots of trees & huge rocks.
This is what they call the 'geological' border between Canada & America. From the Laurentian Divide, the southside, the water flows south. From the north side, the water flows north to the Hudson Bay. Interesting tidbit, eh?
