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

Hidden Falls

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

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.
