An autumn view of the falls at Big Woods State Park. The flow was quite heavy from all the recent rain which was a big change from the near trickle I experienced back in June. I plan to come back and photograph the falls when there’s snow on the ground. 10/7/2017
The picturesque hidden falls of Nerstrand Big Woods State Park. This park is about an hour south of Minneapolis and holds one of the last examples of big woods vegetation in MN. 6/24/2017
A peaceful morning on Lake Agnes. The still water created a perfect mirror of the shoreline. Can you tell which side is the actual reflection? 5/28/2017
I took this photo on my way to Lake Agnes during a Memorial weekend trek on the Superior Hiking Trail. The entire day’s hike was shrouded in thick mist which gave the trail a mysterious atmosphere. Strange low-pitched thumping noises could be heard throughout the foggy woods – it was the call of the Ruffled Grouse.
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.
Here’s a shot from my recent road trip up to Grand Portage State Park which is located at the Northeastern point of Minnesota. My photo comrade and I hiked in a snowstorm in hopes of photographing the high falls. The views were spectacular along our hike with deep canyons, rootbeer dyed rapids, and endless rolling hills of trees and rocks.
