Winter Storm Brings Down Popular Tettegouche Sea Stack

Photos Provided by Tettegouche State Park Show the Sea Stack Dating Back to 1932

SILVER BAY, Minn. – A popular natural landmark for North Shore photography is no longer.

The famed Tettegouche State Park Sea Stack toppled during the recent winter wallop that started blanketing the region with multiple inches of snow on Saturday, November 30.

One archived picture provided by Tettegouche State Park is a black and white photo from around 1932, showing a robust arch and stack.

Mead says the photos document the erosion of the structure over several generations.

He says the same forces that created the arch and stack, eventually brought them down.
