CURRENT GRAND MARAIS SCENES

December 2017

NOTE: More Grand Marais scenes are posted often on my blog at www.agatelady.blogspot.com and on my main personal Facebook page listed under Karen Ann Penegor Brzys.

For this webpage update, I have selected some of my favorite pictures that I took in the Grand Marais area between August and November.

To begin here are a couple of fall photos. The first was taken from the Log Slide area looking toward Au Sable Point in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The second was taken during a hike on the White Birch interpretive trail above Twelve mile Beach Campground.

While at the Twelve Mile Beach Campground I also captured a sunset photo.

On another fall hike in the national park from the Log Slide to the Hurricane River, I captured this picture of the lighthouse.

The photo below was taken on the same hike. It shows the mouth of the Hurricane River looking west. Grand Island, located in Munising Bay, can be seen in the background.

This year we have had more high wind events than you can count. During one storm I drove east of town, hiked to the shoreline, and captured this image.

The third week of October we had some of the largest waves ever recorded on Lake Superior. One wave was 28.8 feet high, as measured at a buoy located north of Munising. As a result, the shoreline erosion was intense. There are sections of the beach that are no longer passable, unless you walk in the water. At other points the driftwood just piled up as can be seen in these two photos taken at First Creek, located just west of Woodland Park in Grand Marais.

We have had a couple of early snowfalls, but as of the end of November all the snow has melted. Here are a couple of photos I took just after one of the early snowfalls.
