Please do not touch pictographs!
The most popular spot is on South Hegman Lake, an easy day paddle from the Ely area. You
will also find pictographs on the eastern shore of Lac la Croix on Irving Island, on
the western shore of Crooked Lake just north of Lower Basswood Falls and in the Cache Bay area on Saganaga Lake. Look on your map for
an "I" (stands for "Indian painting") or, on the National Forest map,
"Pictured Rocks." You'll be glad you planned your route where there are ancient
paintings we still know little about.
