RAINY LAKE BOAT TOUR

TODAY WE TOOK THE VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK RAINY LAKE BOAT TOUR. WE DISCOVERED THAT LOTS OF PEOPLE TRIED MINING GOLD ON VARIOUS ISLANDS ON THE LAKE. THERE WAS EVEN A BOOM TOWN ON AN ISLAND CALLED RAINY LAKE CITY.

THIS IS THE NEW VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK TOUR BOAT


WHAT IS LEFT OF RAINY LAKE CITY AND A 5 STAMP STAMP MILL FOR EXTRACTING GOLD FROM ORE.
