More Lake Superior and River Photos from this Winter!

Lake Superior is pretty
no matter what the season.

It is just harder to get outside when it is cold to face
the icy wind coming off the lake to take photos of it.

But, last winter, braved it, I did.

I am glad now that I took the time as it is beautiful even when it is frigid.

These pictures were taken before the lake got more ice...
it got ice in the bay this winter after I took these shots.

I also went on our annual snowshoe hike into Canyon Falls
and got some pictures of the river....but the falls were almost frozen over,
so I didn't get shots of those!









In case you are wondering what that long structure is on the right in this photo,
it is a set  of ore docks where trains run along the top and pour iron ore into
ore boats by lowering the chutes onto the boats:









I loved the winter sky and moon the day I was there:













We never see black squirrels here ---
but for a few weeks one showed up and then we never saw it again....








A shot of the Sturgeon River on its way to Canyon Falls:





No pictures of the falls, but the cliffs beside the falls had amazing ice and snow patterns clinging to them:














There was an instructional sign on the tree leading to the falls.
My husband makes birch bark frames out of white birch bark and yellow birch bark
but we never harm live trees like this one...we take the bark from dead, downed trees.

Yes, I am a lucky gal to have a husband so helpful!:

I am slowly getting to and through my winter photos for you
so I can get caught up to Spring!
