North Shore Adventures

I ventured up Lake Superior’s North Shore yesterday for some quality hiking at Gooseberry Falls State Park. In my mind, it was the perfect day to go hiking. It was 40s/50s, sunny, and a slight breeze. I also really wanted to see the different waterfalls peaking with all the snowmelt. The rushing river and overflowing waterfalls did not disappoint! I hiked the Fifth Falls Trail into the park, upstream on the Gooseberry River (aka: away from the Lake Superior shoreline & the crowds). It was my 3rd time hiking this trail and I still love it. I try to hike it earlyish in the spring because Gooseberry is extremely popular once tourist season is in full swing. I had some fun with my dSLR camera, but I still need to look through and edit those images. So, here are a few shots I took on my iPhone.

I also spent some time on my favorite beach at Flood Bay just north of Two Harbors. Found some beautiful rocks and loved listening to the rhythm of the waves.
