21 – Where Sleeping Giants Lie

An Ojibway legend has it that the great giant Nanabijou, Spirit of the Deep Sea Water, turned to stone after the location of a rich silver mine was disclosed to the ‘white man.’  The stone giant, otherwise known as the Sibley Peninsula now lies on its back, extending out into Lake Superior and forms Thunder Bay.

This mysterious landmark was voted #1 among the Seven Wonders of Canada, which were selected in 2007 in a nationwide competition sponsored by CBC.  It beat out the Bay of Fundy, Niagara Falls, the Northern Lights and several other significant nominees.  It truly is an amazing sight to behold.
