Description Suggest change

The great North Woods is not only home to countless mosquitoes, but also holds the remnants of several ancient mountain ranges. Although these mountain ranges have been brought low by the long passage of time and by the crushing truth of glaciation, memories of those ancient ranges remain in scattered boulders.

Getting There Suggest change

Head north. See the sub-areas for further direction.
