The Mouth Of The Montreal River

From Wikipedia: The Montreal River is a river flowing to Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. For most of its length, the river's course is used to define a portion of the Wisconsin-Michigan border. The Ojibwe name for the river is Gaa-waasijiwaang, meaning "where there is whitewater".

 

The Montreal River issues from Pine Lake in the town of Oma in eastern Iron County in northern Wisconsin. It flows initially northwardly to the boundary between Iron County and Gogebic County, Michigan, then northwestwardly along the state line, past the 'twin cities' of Hurley, Wisconsin and Ironwood, Michigan. Downstream of Ironwood the river passes over Saxon Falls and Superior Falls and enters Oronto Bay on the southwestern shore of Lake Superior, at Michigan's westernmost point.
