A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

More highlights from our North shore trip....

If you ever get to Grand Marais, you must check out Artist point

 It's an easy hike, with beauty everywhere you look!

The enchanted forest...I expected to see little fairies (no such luck)

 The bay area in Grand Marais
 Looking back on Grand Marais from Artist's Point
The clouds were descending over the town, 
which put a damper on the fall colors in the hills

After our morning hike we had some lunch then headed south about 25 miles to 
Temperance River for some more hiking....we love this area. 

 This is only about 5 miles from the place we stay

The park is full of falls and gorges...just beautiful 

We could site here all day 

 Just pretty

hiking along the river was lovely!

The Sun did not make much of an appearance this year, 
on our trip to the North Shore but low and behold,
 it came out for us Friday morning... the day we left
I was thankful for the little bit sunshine

Just south of Duluth on our trek back to Rochester we ran into this......

you know I was beyond glad!!!


  1. We share a love for that part of the world. I remember many impromptu weekends to Duluth and further north. The kids loved climbing around Gooseberry Falls-I liked watching them and sitting quietly to let the beauty surround me. Thank you for sharing your pictures--there isn't much scenery like that here in the desert.

    1. We also remember taking the kids up that way. We camped at "lambs Resort", such great memories :)

  2. Beautiful pictures! Looks like you got to see lots of fall colors.

    1. It was actually Peak colors, and they were beginning to fall, so we hit it pretty good!

  3. Love all the pictures and pretty colors. Glad you and Dad got to have another fun trip up there!

  4. Jackie, these images are spectacular. Randy and I really need to explore this area more. We just returned from a get-away following the Mississippi River on the Wisconsin side from Nelson north to St. Croix Falls. The fall colors were virtually non-existed until we reached Osecola.
