Honeymoon part 2

Our second stop of the trip was a visit to Gooseberry Falls! I had never been there! Amazing! I'm ashamed to say I had no idea Minnesota had such beautiful waterfalls! There were many more falls to see but it was rainy and cold the other days so we didn't venture out to them all.
I wish I could have bottled up the scent at the falls for you all. It was a combination of moss, water, fresh air, pine trees, birch bark, and dirt! It was heavenly!

This was Upper Falls. Gooseberry Falls is made up of 3 different falls, Upper, Middle, and Lower. I can just imagine how beautiful the falls are in the spring when the water is really rushing or in the winter when its all frozen in place! Spectacular I'm sure!

This is up above the Upper Falls, where its just a stream right now. In the spring it will become a roaring river.

This is the Middle Falls. Here you could walk right out in front of the falls, and then look up and down to the others, it was magical!

Here is Lower Falls. After this last waterfall it becomes a little stream again full of trout and then flows out through the woods and off the shore into Lake Superior!

This was the view of the falls from where we parked the truck.
Gooseberry Falls was amazing! I'm unsure how I have lived in Minnesota most my life and never visited. We take for granted the gorgeous stuff all around us because we are here everyday. I'm going to make more effort to explor the hidden beauties of my state more often.
This was my Favorite part of the stuff we visited on the trip! I loved being out in the fresh air with valdo taking in all the sounds and smells of the wilderness around us!
