the hidden falls

well, it’s not quite so secret since these falls are clearly marked on the map as Wolf Creek Falls in Banning State Park, MN.  When heading out here, I never expected these falls to have this great overhang covered with moss and lichen.  I had to get way up under here to get this neat angle.

This was also my first trip trying out my new Spot locator device.  You can read about it at the link if you haven’t seen these before and I will say I was really happy with it.  Small, and never got in the way clipped to my belt, it kept an accurate track of where I was which I posted a “live” map now on my website header.  Pretty cool!

not yet swept away

Taken just below Wolf Creek Falls in Banning State Park, MN.  It’s a neat little park roughly 90 mi north of Minneapolis.  Just a 1/2mi walk to the creek and falls, it feels very secluded, with growth right up to and over the water.  While up on the falls, I noticed these yellow flowers just down stream so I made my way down there quickly to capture them before they got swept down the creek.

By the way, here is a picture I took while getting this shot:


Gooseberry Falls

This area is about an hour north of of Duluth on the shore of Lake Superior. Since the state of Minnesota was closed, this park area was closed too, but you could just park on the road and it was a short walk to the falls.  I never realized that this part of Minnesota had so many cliffs and bluffs - I’m looking forward to exploring this part of the state more now that I’m living here.
