      Racing kayaks across Lake Michigamme

      Ten miles across Lake Michigamme and back. That's how some people spent their Saturday morning for the first-ever Shore to Shore Kayak Canoe Race. It's the first event created by the new Downtown Development Authority of Michigamme. The organization is trying to attract more visitors to the area to see all the recreational opportunities available.

      "The lake is underutilized, but boy the lake sure does have a lot of character to it, a lot of different areas to explore, islands to go around," said Collen Maki, Secretary of the Michigamme DDA.

      The Downtown Development Authority hopes to make this an annual event.
