jk_putnam People will often stop and talk with me when they see me shooting. This of course can be distracting, but sometimes it pays off. A fellow hiker that ran into me while I was shooting on #isleroyale described to me how to find this small waterfall that dropped strait into the lake. It was off-trail but relatively easy to find. Still, without his interest in what I was doing I never would have went looking for this spot.
A hard location to shoot (without falling in) but a pretty place to visit. I used a pile of filters on my lens to get the shot; ND to smooth out the water and a polarizer to kill the reflections. #isleroyalenationalpark #nationalparks #michigan #lakesuperior #greatlakes #waterfall #longexposure

sunnyann222 Sorry for the belated birthday wishes, @ericagale, but I just wanted to say how THANKFUL I am for our friendship today, that Isle Royale has kept our families friends this long, that you would take time to come see us, and that we have so much to laugh about when you get here. I can't wait to see you this weekend and I love you so much! Happy birthday and safe travels, beautiful! #isleroyale #isleroyalefriendsandfamily #IRFFA! #Colorado #youngman #sisters 12h

jk_putnam Took this shot my last night on Isle Royale. I had seen a painting of this location at the visitor center and asked a ranger how to find it. They were kind enough to tell me. Stopping in visitor centers and talking to locals has become habit for me before heading into a park. You can learn a lot about a place and find some great locations by taking the time to listen to what those in the know have to say. An appreciation for art can help too. #isleroyale #isleroyalenationalpark #nationalparks #michigan #lakesuperior #greatlakes 22h

59nationalparks National Park #11. Isle Royale National Park, Michigan. May 2014.
The weather was challenging during our second visit to this Lake Superior island Park last May. The sunlight you see was about all of the sunlight we saw during our overnight visit. Isle Royale is 99.9% wilderness. Both Moose and Wolves roam the Park. Neither we nor any of the backcountry hikers we spoke to spotted either of the elusive animals. The Moose population is healthy at over 1000. The Wolf population is seriously threatened. Only 8 remain.
Isle Royale National Park has a limited season. The Park is closed from November 1st until April 15th. Visitors can access the Park by ferry from Houghton, Michigan or from Grand Marais, Minnesota. There are a few seaplanes that shuttle visitors too. There are a few cabins and rooms. Most visitors favor backcountry camping. Isle Royal has excellent trails. We hiked this one near the Grand Portage Visitor Center. #IsleRoyale #IsleRoyaleNP #Michigan #hiking #nationalparks #wilderness #moose #wolves #LakeSuperior

  •   mizonaranger "Clearance"? Those should be prime pricing. Good score. I see a National Park tag too. Wonder what that's all about? 4w
  •   _ogee_ @mizonaranger air wick has a series of national park "inspired" scents. This one has been hard to find. But had to buy it. 4w
