October Rain on the Gunflint

I remember camping at the beginning of October some years ago and we experienced snow flurries and 18 degree temperatures. I think I would rather have snow than almost 2″ of rain in a matter of hours. That was the case yesterday on portions of the Gunflint Trail and in Grand Marais.

The rivers are flowing once again on the North Shore and it looks more like spring. The water is gushing down the rocks that line Highway 61. The rivers are full and tourists are enjoying the flow along with the beautiful fall colors.

The leaves won’t last long but they are gorgeous while they are here.
