Deer Haven Rainbow

A rainbow sprouts out from sharp pinnacles after a brief rainstorm in Badlands National Park.  I took this photo from my campsite in Deer Haven just before sunset.  3/16/17

I took this photo at the end of a long and soggy day on the Superior Hiking Trail.  It had been pouring all day, but the rain magically stopped as soon as I stumbled into my campsite.  The forest came alive with golden sun rays pouring through the endless moss-riden trees.  This trail is located along the Lake Superior shoreline of Minnesota and is well known to backpackers.

Fall in the North

I traveled to Lake Superior for peak fall colors this October. The view here is from an overlook one can reach while backpacking (or day hiking) on the Superior Hiking Trail. Walking amongst the trees with their vibrant color was almost a visual overload.
