The Narrows

At the Lake Manitoba Narrows a strong wind can send waves washing against the limestone rocks of an offshore island. The unique sound from the waves is said to be the Manitou, or Great Spirit (in Ojibway, "Manito-bau"). The legend survives in the Province’s name – Manitoba.

Location: on PTH 68, 60 km west of PTH 6 and 68 junction.
