I have been busy with lots of things this year and last. I wanted to do something fun I have not done before. I have never been to Split Rock to see the light house or Gooseberry Falls. I left by myself and headed up north for a day and a half. I wanted to take pictures of the wonderful scenery I have never photoraphed before.
My first stop was Split Rock. It was amazing how big the light house was and how the over look was amazing. I sat and enjoyed the view and took some selfies with my camera and there was a gal that offered to take my picture. I then moved on to view more of the amazing lake. There was all these stairs, 171 to be exact. Those were not the original stairs. They were more rock stairs as you’ll see some I photographed. I walked down all the stairs and the bottom was beautiful. The light house was amazing from the lake and there were humming birds flying around. I sat and enjoyed the view, thinking and enjoying what I was looking at. Then I had to walk back up the 171 stairs. Going down the stairs is much easier than going back up. I can’t imagine carrying loads from boats up these stairs. YIKES!!!
Gooseberry Falls was amazing. I have seen falls before but I have to say it was so peaceful. I loved hearing the falls as they splashed down the rocks. It was a little chilly this day to swim. The water temperature wasn’t to bad. As I was taking pictures of the wonderful trees and the running water around me, I saw the biggest eagle. I wish I would have had my 70 to 200 lens on me. I tried to photograph the eagle but my lens was not that good for the distance he was in the air. Take my word for it he was big and beautiful. It was now time for me to go back to duluth and eat and head back to my hotel and enjoy the duluth for my last day. This was a great small trip for me. I was happy I went to enjoy the days I had. I was happy that I had an offer on taking my photo by the falls. It was awesome to have a cool picture without a selfie. It is hard to take selfies with a big camera.
Thank you for coming on my journey with me. I hoped you enjoyed my photos. I loved going and enjoying the wonderful scenery. If you have never been to either of these places. Please go, its amazing.
