CURRENT GRAND MARAIS SCENES

June 2012

I have been busier than normal the past few months, but I still make time to get out to hike and take pictures. I cannot afford the time daily, but I try to get out a few times a week.

For this web page update, I am including a variety of pictures from the Grand Marais area. First, here are a couple pictures taken from the bluff of the Grand Sable Dunes.

During one sunset hike in the dunes, an ore freighter was passing by.

Here is a picture taken of one of the ghost forests in the Grand Sable dunes.

My friends, Gerald and Jill, bought a house located near Carpenter Creek on the east side of town. I have never walked up that creek bed to see the grotto water falls – at least until a week or so ago. I just love falls that tumble over grotto walk formations.

On Memorial Day weekend I walked out the channel break wall to get pictures of the sunset. I have never seen so many people. There were more than 100 people enjoying the beautiful evening. This is VERY rare for Grand Marais.

The wild flowers have been terrific again this year. I especially enjoyed the trilliums.

One of the best parts of spending time in Grand Marais is to enjoy sunsets on the shore of Lake Superior.

Things have been busy in Grand Marais relevant to the building of the new break wall. I am in favor of making sure that our bay will serve as a harbor of refuge. This certainly requires protecting the mouth of the bay. I just wish that they would spend the extra money and build the break wall to follow the shoreline, rather than dissect the bay. The area east and northeast of the new break wall will fill in with sand. Plus there could be other unforeseen consequences. Let's keep our fingers crossed that these are minimal.
