CURRENT GRAND MARAIS SCENES

September 2011

It was difficult to select the photos I want to feature for this update. I must admit that I love taking pictures with my camera and because I have taken so many pictures this past few months (since the last web page update), I have thousands from which to choose. During the summer months, it is especially fun to take pictures of sunrises and sunsets. This is the only time of the year that the sun rises and sets far enough north that we can see it out over the lake from Grand Marais. I don't get down to the lake side to take many shots of sunrises, but in early August I couldn't sleep early one beautiful morning and I headed down to the breakwater at the end of coast guard point. Just as I pulled up next to the Lighthouse Keeper's museum, a fishing boat was heading through the channel out into Lake Superior.

I have had almost no time this summer to agate hunt along the local beaches. One evening I did head east of town and squeezed in a few minutes walking along the rocks.

Summer Beach

There are many sunset pictures in my archive from this summer, but here are a few of my favorites. The first one shows the sun setting over coast guard point. The second one shows the after glow of sunset in the background (pink sky) and a couple of the sailboats in Grand Marais bay in the foreground.

I had two opportunities to capture couples enjoying sunsets. The first was taken at 12 Mile beach campground and the second was taken on a beach located just west of Munising. Notice Grand Island in the background.

We have had several storms this past month, many of which resulted in huge waves pounding the shore. Here are a couple of shots taken along the Mosquito-Chapel Loop hiking trail in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Some of the splashes from the waves were blasting more than 100 feet in the air! The second picture below was taken on the back side of Grand Portal Point away from the wind.

Here is yet another picture showing waves plummeting the breakwater and lighthouse in Grand Marais.
