The last time we had ventured up the North Shore a couple recommended a waterfall book to us that we have continued to use as our guide to discover all the waterfalls along the north shore of Lake Superior. They also stated that their favorite waterfall was Caribou Falls so we decided that would be our first stop on this trip. While Matt was busy taking "real" pictures on the trip Ellie and I worked the selfie-stick. Yup, I fell for it! It's all for fun but also does work great when you want to get landscape shots in the background of photos and no one else is around to grab a photo of your family on your adventure.

After checking into our room we ventured down the mountain for dinner at Moguls Grille & Tap Room which was absolutely delicious! Another place I would highly recommend. Afterwards we settled back into the condo for the evening, letting Miss Ellie have some time to run free as she was either in a car-seat or baby carrier almost all day. The next day would be coming sooner than later, especially for my hubby who woke up extra early to catch the sunrise at Hollow Rock Resort just north of Grand Marais! I was happy to sleep in and not wake up Ellie super early, but I also am still envious that he was able to experience such a beautiful site!

After the Upper Falls we visited Lutsen Resort on the shore side of Highway 61 where we were able to view the river from a covered bridge.

This was the last selfie taken with my selfie stick as I left it on the roof of the car when we were loading Ellie back into the car-seat and it flew off as we drove away... with my phone attached, that thankfully had 0 damage! After this we headed south on hwy. 61 towards Two Harbors where we eventually headed inland towards home.
This trip was another adventure I will never forget. It's so nice to not have a plan and just go out and find some place you'd like to hike or haven't seen! We literally could spend countless weekends on the North Shore before we see all of the Waterfalls in this book.
Until next time.......
