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.
AFTER THE RAINS
The Cascade River offers spectacular views after a heavy rainfall. In June 2012 the Minnesota Arrowhead was deluged with record rains, washing out roads and bridges and severely damaging the infrastructure in Duluth. The rains thundered through the cascades as we have seldom seen, delighting those who hiked along the river to see them and providing me with a SIGNATURE photograph!
