Third rescue at the Log Slide

GRAND MARAIS – On Aug. 7, rangers at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore conducted a rescue of a 62 year old woman on the Log Slide. This patient experienced weakness and exhaustion and was transported by boat to Grand Marais Harbor, where she was treated and released by the Burt Township Ambulance Corps. “This is the third rescue of this nature that rangers and local rescue personnel have responded to in the last two weeks,” reported Bill Smith, acting chief ranger at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

“The Log Slide is a steep sand slope that can take as little as five minutes to walk down, but over an hour to climb back up,” according to Smith. “Caution is always urged when attempting this climb. Better yet, enjoy the view from the top of the Log Slide.”
