Amity Creek Falls – Minnesota

Right down the creek from Amity Falls is Amity Creek Falls.  A small cascade that needs to be seen after a heavy rain or the spring season.  Scenic with the pedestrian bridge in the background.  Fun little spot to skip rocks.  Also begs for a little investigative work for the little crabs that call the …

Amity Falls – Minnesota

Amity Falls was the first falls we saw at Lester Park.  Right then, we knew it was going to be a fun visit.  A nice 44 ft. tall waterfall with a bridge overpass and a gazebo right next to it.  Back home we are lucky if our city park has something other than a playground …

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 …

Lester Park – Minnesota

Yet another great city park in Duluth.  Lester Park is a scenic area that was the perfect combination for my family.  Had a play area for the kids, waterfalls for me, and easy road access to all its major features for my then pregnant wife. We really enjoyed our time there. Duluth is a city …

Split Rock Lighthouse – Minnesota

We finally got our Lake Superior moment gazing out across the water looking up at Split Rock Lighthouse. The first few days all we saw was the reddish-brown water around Duluth.  A condition caused by high winds, river sediments, and erosion.  Hoping to see the beautiful blues we imagine the lake to have, it was …

Black Beach – Silver Bay, MN

My wife and girls never thought they were going to get their beach vacation when we headed to the North Star State of Minnesota.  But there we were on a beautiful black “sand” beach.  Girls running towards the waves and retreating squealing with glee as the waves would touch their toes.  Spending some time on …

Wolf Creek Falls – Minnesota

Wolf Creek Falls was supposed to just be a side note in our Minnesota adventure.  A place to stop as we made our way from Minneapolis to Duluth.  It ended up being one of my fondest memories of the whole trip.  All because of my wonderful daughter and her incredible imagination. My oldest and I …
