Instead of checking out the screaming deals at the blowout Second Ascent sale, I was at the North Shore visiting my folks last weekend. I used to go up to Lake Superior almost every summer back in my childhood, but it was a while since I was there. It was good to see the familiar sites, and see a different kind of pretty--nice forests, rivers, lakes etc instead of alpine goodness. The fall colors were quite nice, and it was mosquito free, mostly sunny, and cool! This is quite unusual for MN. I found it quite funny how some hills were called mountains there. This area is really neat, but it's getting more and more developed, and it is significantly harder to find solitude.

I took lots of pictures as always. Feel free to check out the full lot of pictures , but there are a lot.

Lots of pretty trees

One of my favorite

Lake Superior Coast. In the middle is the remains of what used to be a stone arch. The middle of it collapsed in the past year or so. Palisade head is on the far left. This view is from shovel point.
Image

Closeup of the Superior crack on Palisade head. I think it's 30 meters of quasi offwidth goodness. My Dad climbed it way back when.
Image

Shovel Point. There's some good climbing there, and they recently put in some huge bolts at the top so you can rap down and climb some lines there. I'd like to check it out someday
Image

The bolts--about the size of my Dad's foot
Image

Some of the tree dieback. Birches and Aspen have been hit hard. It's a combination of warmer summers, harsh winters (ice storms), and bugs (tent caterpillars). The forest is unfortunately thinning out a noticeable amount over the years.

I also have fond early childhood memories of Lake Superior. Glad you got there when the colors were changing!

Spectacular colours. Glad you got out to enjoy the fall! Next time you'll have to send that offwidth.
