Morning light streaks through the sky illuminating the clouds with pre-sunrise colors.

A Lovely Day at the Beach

There’s nothing like a little sun, a lot of water and some time to wander the shoreline.  Even in the cold of northern Minnesota there is reason to explore the nooks and crannies of the rocky shore of Lake Superior.  Being an ice hunter, I go searching for the creations of nature while they persist, but knowing that what exists today will be gone tomorrow.  However, in it’s place will be new creations formed by wind, water and cold.

A view of the Temperance River just before it begins it’s fall toward Lake Superior.

Below this point it funnels through a narrow gorge with several waterfalls and swirling pools.NVM_0071

My stop at Gooseberry Falls State Park gave me the unusual opportunity to have the falls all to myself, a very rare experience.  I guess it pays to get there early and be willing to be out in single digit temps.

Do I really need to write anything about this image?  Perhaps the viewer has something to add?  Location: Stoney Point, Lake Superior’s North Shore.
