"Lake Superior" - Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Newer Older

I was going through my raw files of our recent trip to pictured rocks to try and squeeze another photo or two out of them. This was taken on our way back when I noticed the evening sun lighting this mossy part of the cliffs edge , I thought it was kind of cool. This part of the trail is about 150 feet or maybe more above Lake Superior. When our kids were little it was a nerve racking hike for dad along this stretch. Trip on one of those exposed tree roots and bye bye!

    Love this shot! The light on the moss is what first caught my eyes, but the more I look at it the more I find other beautiful things in it. The range of colors in the water is just unbelievable.
