    The Precambrian rocks, older than 2, m.y., in the Saganaga Lake-Northern Light Lake area on the Minnesota-Ontario boundary include a thick succession of metavolcanic rocks, chiefly greenstone but with some intermediate to silicic types, and minor metasediments; the Northern Light Gneiss; the Saganaga Tonalite; alkalic syenodiorite and granodiorite; and the Knife Lake Group. If you have an interest in geology, the best book to have along is “Roadside Geology of Ontario: North Shore of Lake Superior” by E. G. Pye. It is keyed to mileages along the route and points out features in the geological history of the area.
