on the ground at the Kam

The flat, water smoothed rock that lines the shore of the Kaministiqua River in places has years of stories carved on it.

Someone at some time had made a campfire on top of one of the rocks. Maybe they wanted to cook up a shore lunch of pickeral? The ashes of the bygone fire attracted this pretty blue-spotted butterfly. I don't know what kind of buttefly this is, but the Thunder Bay Field Naturalists have an image of it as the mascot on their butterfly page.

Some very interesting fungus was on the ground by the path. Up close it looked like a carefully carved mini sand castle.
