Thanks for the condition report. I was thinking about heading up there tomorrow but might have to stay around Duluth.

Bold TextI looking for a large mad rock that was at sawmill in July. I twisted my ankle and had to leave it and came back to find it missing. Please message me if you have it and I'll pick it up.
