Poplar River View

One can expect to see many lookouts while traveling on the superior hiking trail.  Here’s a springtime view of Poplar River taken on my recent 3-day trek.   5/27/2017


Spring in the Rockies

Mountain's Spring

The hike up to Mill’s Lake was perfect with temps around 70°F and a cool breeze.  I enjoyed hiking over snow mounds in my t-shirt and sunglasses.  The rapid snow melt laced our trail with many small streams and river crossings.

The Red Hunter

Return of Foxy


It was a beautiful warm sunny spring day on Barn Bluff in Red Wing, MN.  I was hiking up the south bluff trail when this lovely red fox popped out onto the trail.  The fox paused for a minute to look at me before trotting off.  I wasn’t sure if it was male or female but, I figured it was a parent because it was carrying a mouse in it’s jaws.  Seeing this charming creature thriving in it’s habitat gave me great joy.
