This past week, my family and I headed up to Minnesota's North Shore for a few days. Now my love for the N.S. is well professed so I thought I'd share a few pics from the weekend.
They have been getting hammered up there with precipitation and it didn't stop till we were leaving on Saturday morning. The rivers and streams were raging. Lots of spontaneous waterfalls were forming everywhere in addition to the large ones on most of the big rivers up there. On Thursday, the drainage ditches along Hwy 61 were pretty much filled and water was threatening to flow across the highway. Lots and lots of erosion happening up there obviously.
Around the Beaver Bay/Silver Bay area there was still quite a bit of beautiful fall color, but the Tofte/Lutsen/Grand Marais area has already moved well past prime. Still, there is so much beauty up there it doesn't take much to find it.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
