I think I've failed to show you photos of Steve and I's trip up North, right? The good news is that I do have all my photos uploaded into a Picasa album - so I can show you without much thought!
First and foremost - we're FAMOUS!
Yep, that's right - we're hanging on the wall of a donut shop - be jealous!
We stopped a few places on the way up, remember, our state was in a shutdown during this trip, so State Parks were closed. People we allowed to park on the road and hike in, but no driving into the lots or to the trailheads. Other than that - here is a nice sampling of photos from the trip:
|Temperance River State Park|
|Looking out as it flows into Lake Superior|
|on Da Beach|
|Found some neat looking mushrooms|
|Cascade River State Park|
|Playing with settings, trying to master flowing water|
|Wayside Rest Stop, which was closed, but we walked in and down to the water anyhow|
|On the way to Canada, eh! Bright and early, off to see Kakabeka Falls!|
|Holy crap - these falls are HUGE!|
|again, trying to play with flowing water|
|we had lunch under this tree with Steve's parents|
|The fog was THICK on the North Shore|
|In Grand Marais, walking along the rocks|
|rock towers were all over!|
|My favorite pier|
|Gooseberry Falls, busy as ever, not a huge flow of water (this is the only way I've ever seen these falls)|
|My favorite flower on the North Shore!|
|Thick Fog - there is a tunnel up there, you can barely see it!|
|I promise I still like him. My camera was strapped around my neck.. I was just trying to make sure my face was in it - no matter how scrunched it looked!|
