We did a few trips to various beaches and points in the peninsula. The weather looked like it was going to turn for the worst one morning while we were hitting the beaches by Kalaloch. While we had the clouds and wind, the rain never came, and by the afternoon we were back to clear skies with minimal wind for the beaches closer to Forks.Read details
Three of the shorter hikes we took the whole time in the park led to nice waterfalls. Each of these trails was extremely easy going, with one (Madison Falls) being a mere 0.2 miles, that winds through the woods on a paved trail with one of the best reveals of a waterfall as you take a curve in the trail.
Below are images from these 3 falls.Read details
One of my favorite places has to be Palisade Head. A 300+ foot rock face on the MN North Shore along Lake Superior. Anytime I am nearby, I have to make my way to the top and take in the view. I headed over that way for sunrise photos earlier this week, and while the sunrise was pretty bland color wise, I walked up the path to the top once again. This time, I took along a drone, so I was able to get a shot at the shore line from an angle I never could before.Read details
My grandfather passed away recently. His greatest craft/hobby was woodworking. From functional items like tables, cabinets, beds and other furniture, decorative items like vases, cups and teapots all the way to toys like Jeeps and trucks for his grandchildren, he spent much of his time working with his hands creating beautiful pieces from blocks of wood, with his loyal shop cat always nearby.
His memory will live on with each person that has one of these finely crafted pieces of artwork and craftsmanship. Through the hours and love that he poured into each item throughout their creation and giving, he will not be forgotten.Read details
