We had several storms this week.
Split Rock Lighthouse
This is a photo of an early morning sunrise at Split Rock Lighthouse with storm clouds.
Upper Gooseberry Falls
Rainstorms brought the rivers up which make for good waterfall watching. We stopped at Gooseberry Falls State Park and the Upper Falls was pretty impressive.
Middle Gooseberry Falls
A long exposure of the Middle Falls gives motion blur to the water.
Lower Gooseberry Falls
An island divides the Lower Falls. The water runs on both sides of this white cedar and over the years the roots have been exposed.
The leaves are starting to turn. I think the peak will be early this year and with plenty of moisture the colors should be vibrant. The Sumac is the first to turn.
These photos were taken from the Grand Marais Pincushion Mountain overlook. They show the different stages of color transformation.
Sumac has so many distinct patterns.
