Lake Superior September Trip – Part 1
March 20, 2012
I know, I know, I’m behind to the point of embarrassment. However, I finally dug up the iPhone videos I shot on my trip last September to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s UP – and I hope you’ll agree it was worth the wait!
Now, if you click the photos below, you’ll be taken to a page that does a decent job of detailing what happened during the actual shoot, so we’ll forgo repeating it all here and keep this post on the short side. Besides, the video really tells the story anyway
BTW – The video below was shot with my iPhone4G. It’s not the best video camera in the world, but my regular video camera is just too bulky to squeeze in the pack. Well, unless I forgo the whole eating thing, but since I’m a pretty big fan of a full stomach, I opted for the iPhone. So, please excuse the quality, but check out the waves!
(PS – Please forgive the really bad audio at the end – the phone was in my pocket when the wave hit and got pretty wet)
This photo was the result of going out that morning and pretty much sums up what I saw. It was taken about a half an hour before the video was taken – hey, I’m not going to shoot video when the light looks like this:
And yes, I did hit the trail with a backpack later that day. Funny, it started off sunny and warm but as I drew closer to the lake I was tagged first with showers, then sleet, and finally rapidly dropping temps. Still, it all worked out in the end. Mosquito Beach yielded this shot:
Again, click the photos for a more detailed account of what happened. I was pretty excited to get two keepers in one day!
Oh, and if you think this was an intense day, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Just wait till you check out the “Day 2″ hike from Mosquito to Chapel – good stuff….
Thanks for stopping by -oh and you can read part 2 here.
