This curious and noted formation is located near the head of Lake Pepin, one and a half miles from the village of Frontenac. It was held in great reverence by the Dacotah tribe of Indians, who cherished a tradition that the rude resemblance to a head, which caps the structure, was fashioned by the Great Spirit, and set as a sentinel to guard their fishing grounds. The elevated table-land, on the right, is a prominent landmark among steam-boatmen of the Upper Mississippi, and is known as Diamond Bluff. [P. 31.]
