Murky Superior Hiking Trail


SHT Forest Boardwalk

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.

Northern Exposure

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.
