After leaving Foster Falls we drove over to Upson to try and find Upson Falls. I had stopped on several earlier occasions but didn’t realize that Upson Falls could not be seen from the small park and campground. After a short walk around a large outcropping of rocks we found Upson falls.

Upson Falls also had some interesting foam patterns to photograph.

When we returned to the car I took out my macro lens to photograph some of the flowers found along the Potato River.

On a beautiful cool morning my wife and I took a walk on the Red Cedar State Trail. There were large numbers of flowers out along the Trail. The Bloodroot and the Pussy Willows were just about done blooming. It was early in the morning and the Bloodroot had not opened yet.

The White Trout Lillie’s were out in some places. When we walked by the first time they were not open yet but when we returned they had opened.

 

The Anemone were out in large numbers along the trail.

There were large groups of Spring Beauty blooming on the side of the trail.

Lots of Common Blue Violets can be found.

Here are a few more flower photos from the Red Cedar Trail.

Nothing is too mundane to take a photo of. Just some leaves I found along the trail. I liked the color and pattern.

I walked down to the Duluth Rose Garden the other day but on my way I happened upon the Wild Ones Garden Club wildflower garden positioned at the entry to Lief Erikson Park. There were a large number of wildflowers in bloom.

Finally a nice day after several weeks of cloudy and rainy weather. Friday, June 24th,  I was out early for a six mile walk on the Red Cedar State Trail. It was windy out so I just took my camera and the 28-300mm lens along. This was my first walk on the trail in several weeks so I was interested in finding out what had changed.

 

Yellow Flag Iris

I think the pent up demand was evident as there were a lot of bikers out this morning since this was the first time we had seen the sun all week.

 

Bald Eagles

There were a variety of birds along the trail. Several types of sparrows, and warblers, Grosbeaks and Grey Catbirds were also abundant. Lots of bird calls but it was sometimes difficult to find them with all of the foliage on the trees. I did walk past the eagles nest at the 1.5 mile mark. Two fledglings were out on limbs above the nest. I suspect they will be leaving the nest in the next week or so.

 

Dragonfly

As the day warmed up more and more butterflies and dragonflies could be found along the trail. I counted five different types of butterflies and a couple dragonflies.

 


Prickly Rose

There were a few late spring flowers still in bloom and many of the early summer flowers were blooming all along the trail. It’s one of the reasons I like to walk the trail rather than bike so I can stop and smell the roses.
