Camping highlights from north shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota, Part One

One day we hiked up along the Caribou River to the falls.
The river has cut a deep trench.

One of many falls along the way.
I forget exactly how many steps it took to get to said falls, but there were a lot of them.
Some embedded video right here would be way more impressive than this photo could ever be; trust me, it was pretty awesome to be right there.

Not warm enough, or safe enough to get into, but great for sitting.

More tomorrow…

BTW, here’s what I have been reading lately:
Sort of a cross between her last book, The Same Stuff as Stars, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.  Unfortunately, I didn’t like it very much.  Lowry is trying to hard to a) be clever, and b) get people to read old classic children’s books that nobody reads anymore, but she doesn’t do it in a very engaging way.
Middle School angst.  I like it.  And coincidentally, it offers vocabulary enrichment in an engaging way that
The Willoughbys couldn’t achieve. 

Endearing.

    Caribou River is great
    Thanks for sharing your adventures on the Caribou River. The upper gorge of the Caribou is super cool; I’ve done a lot of “swimming” in those pools.

    Aw…
    yay for camping! That was fun. And–you’ve been reading up a storm! I’m enjoying the “Bell Jar,” it’s my major read right now.
