October 2014

Photo Experience:   For most of the time that my wife and I spent here early in the month, overcast skies, cool-to-cold temperatures, and rain was the weather-du-jour. We did have one nice day of sunshine, however, and encountered some wonderful scenery in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore along the southern edge of Lake Superior, the largest body of fresh water on the planet. Miners Castle Overlook provided a nice opportunity with a blue sky. Miners Beach was also worthwhile with the colorful pebbles on the sand. At the North Country Trailhead, we hiked out to the beach and photographed a well-known, although officially nameless, waterfall that flows directly into Lake Superior. One of the more widely accepted names for this spot is “Falls on Potato Patch Creek”, which is best photographed in late afternoon on a sunny day.

Other Info:   The folks at the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore/Hiawatha National Forest Visitor Center in Munising were very helpful.
