After leaving the Presque Isle River we stopped at Root Beer Falls for a brief visit. With the recent rains there was quite a bit of water flowing.


After driving around Gogebic County for a while we decided to drive over to Bond Falls. The colors were not at their peak and it looked like rain was on the way. Indeed it did start raining once we reached the bottom of the falls.

I also managed a few close-up shots while walking to the bottom of the falls.

After leaving Grand Portage State Park we stopped at Grand Portage National Monument for a brief visit. The last time we were at the park the Rendezvous Days and Pow Wow was taking place. It was almost deserted on this cool fall day.


Our final destination on our Minnesota North Shore road trip was High Falls at Grand Portage State Park. This was an unusual visit because it was the first time that we had been at the falls, other than during the winter, that we didn’t get drenched by the spray from the water coming over the falls.



We also made a brief stop at along the road to take some photos of Teal Lake. We discovered there is a short road to an overlook but it is not marked.


A popular photograph location is the pull-off at the Wayswaugoing Bay overlook. The fall colors still had a way to go but the view is still spectacular.


After leaving Grand Marais we took the Gunflint Trail to Bearskin Lodge. We stopped at the lodge for a brief visit. My wife checked out the accommodations for a potential winter ski trip.


We were up early. The sun was out but we weren’t sure for how long. My wife wanted to drive up to Bearskin Lodge where many of her relatives stayed during the summer. We took the Gunflint Trail out of Grand Marais. These were some of the views of Grand Marais from and overlook above the city.

We took a side road and ran into a small photography class at this cemetery. The scene at a child’s grave was very moving.

Two of my photos appear in the October/November 2019 issue of Lake Superior Magazine.

Continuing on to Mellon we decided it had been a long time since we stopped at Copper Falls State Park so we decided make the visit. Recent rains meant there was a good amount of water flowing.
