Winter is in full swing and the thermometer has really shown it in recent weeks. Sounds like we are in for a reprieve from the sub-zero and windy conditions for a spell, though! The recent cold has been fantastic for winter photography along the lake and in the woods. Here are a few favorites that you may or may not have seen from recent hikes, drives and trips to The Lake.

This year I will keep you updated on the changing seasons and the changing light with frequent posts, so stay tuned! 🙂
The hike to Caribou Falls on the Caribou River is a fairly short and easy walk in the woods. The stairs may be the only area that may deter some, but without them the climb down to the base of the falls would be dicey. This is an awesome hike any time of year, but winter may be my favorite. In the winter months we walk right up the frozen river on snowshoes or Sorels. Find the time to do this short, rewarding hike on your next trip to the North Shore.
Until next time… Tom
We’ve had some great skies in the past week. Northern Lights last weekend, and rainbows and Lightning this week. I was able to catch some Rainbow action and about 4 hours with the northern lights along the Sawbill Trail here in Tofte, MN.
I traded in my dial-up internet connection for high-speed broadband, thanks to a county wide initiative to bring broadband to Cook County. It’s a treat, and I have a lot to learn and catch up on. Bookmark this page, and I’ll try to keep you updated with photos and notes about my experiences along The Shore.
