Four gulls on the breakwall

Four gulls on the breakwall

After stopping at Lake Muskallonge then driving west along Lake Superior I headed for Grand Marais.  I’d never been there before but found it a nice town and very comfortable.  After lunch and some good beer at the Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing Co. I headed for the very edge of town toward the breakwall and Lake Superior to see what photo opps lie ahead.  Great waves on Lake Superior, but these gulls didn’t seem to care.  They relaxed atop the breakwall as waves repeatedly splashed along.  The colorful tones of the water and rigid line of the wall made a fun composition.

So much beautiful forest at the base of Mt. Rainier.  Creeks and rivers abound, and waterfalls cascade over mossy rocks, darkened by the wet and making the lush foliage brighter and greener.  The roads wind and switch-back, but no rus, just pull the car to the side of the road, get out, and take in the beauty.
