Northshore Minnesota May trip before the big holiday.

The harbor at Grand Marais is very nice. They have created a wonderful park and many people have put in great effort to make it so nice. This location was a gas station the first time I visited Grand Marais in 1983.

The Cross River Falls can be seen right from a wayside on Highway 61.

High Falls at the border is the highest falls in Minnesota. Last week after we snapped this shot it rained hard and the waterfalls are just flowing at a level not seen in almost a decade. I recall being in Grand Marais about nine years ago on Memorial Day weekend and it rained 3" and the falls were huge. There is a new visitor center at Grand Portage and a very nice improved trail to the falls. The drive up to the border and back is fantastic.

I love waterfalls. They are just magical in some way.
