The Pelicans Are Back!

Every year around mid-April, a large number of pelicans arrive to spend time on the St. Louis River near Duluth. Photographers and sightseers alike come out to view the birds and enjoy their layover.

Wet Rocks on a Cold Day

During a snowy, wet spring day, I took a short hike at Jay Cooke State Park to check the water level on the St. Louis River. The river still has a bit of ice around the edges but, the main channel is open and flowing. As I climbed around the rocks, I discovered this bit of color.

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. I have been participating in Opt Outside from the beginning and this year was no different. 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.

October Gift

We don’t often get temps above seventy in October but, when we do, it behooves us to get outside and enjoy it. I choose to spend a few hours at Jay Cooke State Park enjoying the sound of the St. Louis River and waiting for the sunset.

A Little Fresh Air

I’ve been cooped up a bit too long between staying home and my time working at our local food co-op, time to go outside and hug a tree.  And grab a photo or two.
