CRT2015 – Lake Erie

As our final stop on day four we visited Erie Bluffs State Park right outside of Erie, Pennsylvania. I've never seen one of the great lakes, and it was pretty impressive. You can't see the other shore, so it must have been difficult for early explorers to determine whether this was a lake or an ocean (aside from taste, I suppose). The rocks along this part of the coast of Lake Erie are all wave-polished shale - or in other words, the *perfect* stones for skipping. They were flat, smooth, and palm-sized. We stood on the shore skipping rocks for quite a while - I just wish it had been less windy so the waves would have died down some. It was pretty tough to skip rocks with the swells.
