Much-photographed rock stack in Minnesota state park fall in a storm

SALLVER BAY, Minn. – Visitors to Tettegouche State Park Sunday, December 1, are reporting on social media that a huge fall has been made on rising rock piles from Lake Superior offshore after the weekend's winter storm.

George Ilstrup of Duluth launched a picture of the rocks on Saturday on his Instagram account. A day later, he repeated it to say that the rocks were gone.

"RIP to the Tettegouche sea stack from the picture I put in the post," he wrote Sunday. "He broke out in the storm last night!"

It is the remnants of the stack of rocks from a known arch formation which fell in part in 2010. The arch was carved from thousands of years of Lake Superior waves.

Tettegouche State Park is along the North Shore near Illgen City, about 30 miles east of Two Harbor.
