We were so glad to have a secluded camping spot with all of the rain and wind last night. When we got out this morning, many of the tent campers had left. I would have slept in my car if I had a tent.
After getting all set up, we headed out to the waterfalls.
We have been amazed at how nice the Minnesota trails and parks we have seen are. The Superior Hiking Trail, which we have spent time on, just won an award from REI. We can see why.
Upper Falls from above.
After hiking up and down lots of stairs and arriving at Two Steps Falls, we realized that the walk back was a long ways. We climbed the side of the falls and walked thru the river, which wasn't running very high. I bet it is much higher after all of the rain last night and this morning.
The Gitchi-Gumi was a nice ride with hills., much nicer than the flats we had before.
Split Rock Lighthouse has been beautifully preserved and has great docents that tell the stories.
After walking down to the beach for a picture, we got to walk back up the stairs again. Who needs a gym when you have 172 stairs.
