I often plan photo shots with some detail, but this morning I hoped for the best. I’m traveling in one of my favorite places—the North Shore of Lake Superior. I got to my hotel—the Cascade Lodge—late and didn’t know what might be good places in the morning to shoot. I found a nice pull-over spot.
I then drove a short way down to a wayside next to the Lake and walked to the shore. Some folks had laid out a delightful cairn.
Then I found the nearby state park—Cascade River—and hiked to the cascade.
I wish I could upload the pine smell and the bird song, but here are some of the wild flowers.
And now its time for breakfast and processing the gifts the morning gave. If you’re ever driving the North Shore, I recommend french toast with blueberry compote at the Cascade. And then refresh your soul with all the other gifts that surround you!
