Cory Fechner sent out this drone video today of Five Mile Rock, east of Grand Marais.
“There is urban legend that three guys were stranded on the rock for four days in the early 1900’s when their boat struck the rock and sank,” says. “It is said they enjoy their time on the rock and didn’t want to leave when a passing boat finally rescued them.”
