CURRENT GRAND MARAIS SCENES

September 2012

I must admit that the summer schedule did not allow much time to hike. This is the first year that I worked most of the hours, other than when I was away at shows. The blog keeps me honest, to a degree, so I was able to get some good shots to document the beauty of the Grand Marais, MI area.

Twice this summer I hiked from the Hurricane River to Au Sable lighthouse. It is a great section of beach that is dotted with shipwreck remnants.

The lighthouse was built in the late 1800s to warn passing ships of the sandstone rock that extends a mile out from shore. The view from the top is amazing.

Progress on the new break wall, which will protect the mouth of Grand Marais bay, continues.

The waves of Lake Superior usually do not kick up their heels until October or November. This past few years, however, we have had strong winds much earlier. This year we had two extreme wind events in August!

Summer is the time when we in Grand Marais enjoy some fantastic sunsets. In the winter, the sun sets too far south.
