Rock at Mic Mac Lake
The rock pictured above was located on Mic Mac Lake, in a little inlet near the cabins. I think it jutted out into the lake from the edge of bog. It was covered in a variety of mosses and lichens; each side of the rock featured a slightly different assortment. I was drawn to the rock when I first spotted it and visited it twice during our trip. One visit was by myself, and the second was with my youngest daughter.
