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.
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.
Photo of the Lake Superior shoreline covered with a thick blanket of mist. The Lafayette Bluff Tunnel can be seen in the distance.
I found this very large Leopard frog sitting on a path in Lebanon Hills Regional Park. I salute your insect eating success good sir. f/11, 1/15 sec, ISO-100, 39mm
