Naniboujou Lodge and Temperance Stte Park

The rain in the night was windy and very heavy.  Waking to the rumbling waterfalls thru the forest, we had to take a short hike, less than a mile from our site, to check it out. the water level had doubled. Standing on the swinging bridge, we spent some time reflecting on our journey. The sound of the water just makes my mind wander.
We had driven to Naniboujou Lodge after Hans from Metamorphosis blog had suggested it. Driving north the rain stopped and sun almost came out.

The lodge was built in the 1920s and painted by a French artist with Cree Indian designs. Shortly after opening, Black Friday hit and it closed shortly after when members could no longer pay their fees. Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey were original members.

Breakfast was served on china. Wild rice is grown and harvested in Minnesota and served in many dishes.

On our drive, there are many waterfalls and beautiful views. We stopped and took a hike at Temperance State Park and Devil's Falls before returning home.
