Gooseberry Falls: September 13th, 2013

Busy busy busy on the North Shore.  Not a lot of hiking happening - which is too bad, this is a great time of year to get out and enjoy the early fall.  But fear not, faithful readers (all three of ya!).  Joe and I are taking a mini-vacation at the end of September that will result in many new posts.  We're going to visit a new state and a new National Park.  Which one will we be visiting...hmmm.... :-)

Thunderdog and I took a quick jaunt over to Gooseberry Falls State Park last Friday.  We just wandered around for about an hour, no particular trail.  The water level is quite low right now so we played around just below the falls and enjoyed the nice weather.  My guess is that we covered about two miles total.

Wanna see something crazy?  Open this link to my Gooseberry Falls post from May 1st in a new tab, and then compare the amount of water coming over the falls.  The Lower Falls pictures are taken from a slightly different angle, but you can still see the bridge in the background.  In these pictures I am standing just above the island of trees in the May picture.
