Head northeast out of Grand Marais and the road opens up to Lake Superior more often, there’s only a few businesses, and 35 miles out the topography changes with the three sisters, Mount Jo, Mount Maud & Mount Rose, open vistas to Isle Royale and the nearby Susie Islands. Six more miles and you can access a 120-foot waterfall and enter Canada. This quiet area offers a few vacation rentals, a motel and the Grand Portage and Naniboujou Lodges on the north shore of Lake Superior.
