I know there are a lot of athletes that like extreme sports but what we witnessed yesterday is even above what I would call extreme sports. My brother Leonard and his wife Martha are visiting from Oregon and we took them to Grand Marais for the weekend. We stopped at Cascade River State Park to hike to the waterfalls on the beautiful Cascade River. As we were walking along the trail we noticed some kayakers putting their kayaks in above the first waterfalls. I had heard that some people kayak this area but it was very hard to understand why as it is so dangerous dropping off of a 35 to 40 ft waterfall.
