Cook County, MN
I love that even after almost 43 years of living in an area and being very familiar with it, there are still countless things to be discovered. Such as this waterfall that I saw recently for the very first time. I explored lots of other waterfalls along the way to get here, but this one was a pleasant surprise and my favorite find of the day.
This waterfall is buried deep within a gorge at the end of a short spur off the Superior Hiking Trail near Cascade River State Park. I have a feeling the only reason it was actually flowing is because we had a recent spell of wet weather. I spent about an hour here, losing myself in the aura of this place. Then I made a couple of photographs and continued on my way.
