Gooseberry Falls

Gooseberry Falls is located on the Gooseberry River just a short distance from the north shore of Lake Superior. The falls is actually a series of 3 separate falls. This is middle falls. You can see the highway 61 bridge that crosses the river in the background. The falls are surrounded by Gooseberry Falls State Park. The park is the most visited park on the North Shore with over a million visitors annually. I photographed the falls early in the morning, which is the best time since the falls can get quite crowded. I went with a slow shutter speed to give the running waters that special unique look.

Very pretty. This area of the north shore was a favorite haunt of mine when I lived in St. Paul. I've hiked this trail many times. It's a long one but worth the effort!
