The Shallows – Minnesota

The Shallows is the biggest and best waterfall found in Lester Park.  It is also the most difficult to get to. The downside is the Shallows is nice but pales in comparison to some of the other waterfalls that can be found in the area.  Still it is nice. The Northshore of Lake Superior is …
