[traditional birth stone] The MN State gem: Beautiful Lake Superior Agates - found on both north (MN) and south (WI) shores of Lake Superior. - Agates are semi precious stones so common on Lake Superior beaches no one pays much attention.

Another one of my favorite trips was the Lake Superior Circle Tour, which took me and my mom through northern Wisconsin, northern Minnesota, southern Ontario, and the UP of Michigan. The scenery was astounding.
Why no north eastern shore stops before the end of Lake Superior provincial park on the Canadian side? - American centric "The Best of the Lake Superior Circle Tour" would love to see the whole thing someday!
