Lake Superior

I visit the North Shore of Lake Superior a lot. But I never get bored there. Different seasons bring different views of things, and even places I have visited multiple times, I still enjoy going there again and again. I always seem to find something new to see.

These are the lupines that grow in our yard in northern Minnesota. They grow wild here, and often line the ditches along the roadway. They vary in color from deep purple/blue to white.

Gooseberry Falls

We hiked at Gooseberry Falls one day when we were in Minnesota last week. Here are a few shots that I got while there.

This is a field of wildflowers that is behind a neighbor's house. They are so beautiful, and so abundant! I had to catch a few shots.

Yankee Doodle Pops

Happy 4th of July everyone!! We went to Yankee Doodle Pops the other night- a lovely free event in the city of Des Moines. On the grounds of the capitol, the Des Moines Symphony plays, and then there are fireworks later. It was a beautiful night, not too hot or muggy. We had a great time.
