Autumn Falls

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

Shovel Point on Point

Shovel Point, MN – July 24th 2016.   An ideal Minnesota summer view.  The day started with bacon, OJ, punk rock and a 9-mile run around a soggy forest loop up in Grand Marais.  After a few chilly dips in the lake, the objective was to venture down to Tettegouche for a view of that ol’ Shovel Point.

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.

Enchanted Forest Trail

Enchanted Forest Light

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.
