“a river in the eastern Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan”

The river runs approximately 23.6 miles (38.0 km) through forested wilderness, and drains into Lake Superior. It rises in several short branches in northeastern Luce County, about 15 miles (24 km) southeast of Grand Marais. The North and West branches meet approximately 8 miles (13 km) south-southeast of Muskallonge Lake State Park. The main branch flows generally northeast, approaching Lake Superior at a sharp angle. It enters the lake approximately 10 miles (16 km) east of Deer Park. A Michigan Historic Marker commemorates the Two-Hearted Life-Saving Station built in 1876 at the river mouth. It was a simple two-story building with a small lookout tower manned by six to eight volunteer surfmen who conducted rescues of the Satellite (1879) and the Phineas S. Marsh (1896). The station, along with the rest of the United States Life-Saving Service, was integrated into the U.S. Coast Guard in 1915, decommissioned in the 1930s, and its structures were razed in 1944.
