The Spring runoff plunges over Gooseberry Falls on its way to Lake Superior in this panoramic view of the river. The 2012-2013 winter was longer than normal, with several heavy March snowfalls contributing to the vigorous runoff.
The early days of spring bring a special treat to my regular visits to the rivers of the North Shore. At Gooseberry Falls, the melting snow adds a new dimension to the spectacular falls. The result is a photo waiting to be taken and another opportunity to enjoy a place where the land meets Lake Superior.
