This was in early spring (March) with the trails still snow covered. Extended views and wildlife traces could be found everywhere. The best time to shoot is early morning and near sunset. The glow in the sky is tremendous. Some areas of the trails had snowpack and ice along the rocks and the river. In most cases it was easy to navagate. Snowshoes were the best in the back country. Great time of year to experience this area as well as Lake superior.

Jay Cooke is not by McGregor, it is way closer to Duluth, near Carlton. This needs to be corrected.

Nice park. Nice bike trail, easy hiking. Go in the spring when the St. Louis River is really roaring and the kayakers are practicing their skills.
