My Trip to the North (lots of images)

17 posts in this topic

Thanks to everyone that gave me tips on where to go this weekend. I found lots of color and water. I was upset with myself since I forgot my ND filters at home and my main goal was waterfalls. Since it was cloudy and I had a polarizer I was able to do ok yesterday.

We made it to Split Rock, Gooseberry Falls, Canal Park, Lester Park and Jay Cook on the way home. We were busy for 2 days straight.

Sorry about the amount of images.

Could someone ID this flower? Is it an orchid?

Mike, the flower is touch-me-not (jewelweed). It's a remedy for poison ivy, too. If you get some poison ivy oil on you and there's jewelweed around you can crush it and rub it on the poison ivy site and it'll take care of business. They do often grow in the same places, because they both like full sun and come into disturbed soils like roadsides.

I like all these shots, MM, but I really like the stacked rocks with Split Rock Lighthouse in the BG. Not at all your typical tourist postcard shot of the lighthouse, and the picture made me smile.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Yes, it was a very fun weekend. Can't wait to do it again sometime.

Thanks Steve, that's exactly what I saw when I walked up the shoreline and saw the stack of rocks there. I have the usual type shots of the lighthouse as well, but I knew everyone here had seen those views before.

Thanks again

I like the lighthouse shot also. I love how the blurred lighthouse makes the rocks the featured attraction, but we all know exactally were you were.

Nice shots, I also prefer the S.R. lighthouse image. I sure hope the colors are good this weekend... I'll be all over the place from Split rock to Manitou S.P. and alot of places in between from Friday before sunrise til Sunday after sunrise.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
