2022 #OptOutside Jay Cooke State Park
Once again I chose to skip the mayhem of Black Friday shopping and join the many who prefer to spend time outdoors rather than in lines at the mall. This year I was accompanied by family and friends at Jay Cooke State Park, which, like all Minnesota state Parks, was open to the public for free admission on Black Friday.
Here are a few of the images from the day.
Each year on November 10th, a ceremony is held at the Split Rock Lighthouse on the north shore of Lake Superior to commemorate the loss of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Normally, the light is not on during the year, however, a couple of times it gets turned on for special events.

On Friday, November 11th, I spent time on Park Point in Duluth to not only enjoy a cool snowy morning, but to also photograph the many surfers that came to ride the waves.
Opt Out Outside
In 2015, REI Co-op started Opt Outside inviting employees and members to look at the Black Friday in a new light.

For 2021, I took a trip to Jay Cooke State Park, the nearest state park to Duluth and a park I frequent due to its closeness. On arrival I was happy to see a busy parking lot and lots of people enjoying the nice November day.

Into the Chasm
I wanted to capture the view from the chasm in the rocks but, to do so would require me to go in the frigid waters of Lake Superior. My solution: use my drone to get down and shoot from about three feet above the water. The water makes for a nice leading line to the colorful sky.
Morning by the Lake
Sometimes you have to make a run for the lake when you think there might be a good sunrise. Today was pretty good.
