How a 3-year-old boy found an ancient artifact on a Grand Marais beach
In late October of 2010, much of North America experienced a huge storm complex, known as an extratropical cyclone. Minnesota experienced the lowest barometric pressures ever recorded. Winds from this storm created wave heights of up to 27 feet in northern Lake Superior.
Shortly after the storm ended, Tammy Cefalu and her 3-year-old son, Juniper, were walking a beach near Grand Marais. Juniper noticed an unusual object that turned out to be an ancient Native American artifact.
