Stormy Superior

A stormy day along the shores of Lake Superior north of theTrading Post

I like this picture for several reasons including in particular, the stormy sky.  There are a number of places along the shore of Lake Superior that have nice rock outcrops like this.  It’s interesting to walk along the shore and climb some of these stones.  As I’ve said before the stretch of highway 17 north of Pancake Bay is pretty eerie because often especially outside the summer season there is not a soul around.  Occasionally if you are close to the Highway you can hear the sound of a truck or two pass and then nothing but the wind blowing through the trees and the surf.  This was taken in October 2009.

Lake Superior Moose siting


Sunset on Lake Superior on April 2

This was taken in a remote stretch of beach near Pancake Bay, on Lake Superior on April 2, 2010.  As you can see there is still a bit of snow lingering.  The most remarkable thing about that evening was when I was returning home.  About 10 Km south of this place I came across 5 moose, in two groupings very near the side of the road.  One group consisted of a mother and two calf and the other was a mother and one calf.  I wasn’t able to get a good photo of either group but the memory is quite vivid
