Gooseberry Falls State Park @mndnr

One of our favorite stops in Minnesota was Gooseberry Falls State Park.

From Their Site:

Gooseberry Falls is the gateway to the North Shore. It is known for its spectacular waterfalls, river gorge, Lake Superior shoreline, Civilian Conservation Corps log and stone structures, and north woods wildlife.

Listen to the thunderous roar of the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls of the Gooseberry River as it plummets through a rocky gorge. Watch for waves, ships, or the moon rise on Lake Superior from an ancient lava flow known as the Picnic Flow.

Hike or ski to see the Fifth Falls through a forest of evergreens, aspen, and birch, and enjoy camping in modern campsites, picnicking, and relaxing along the Lake Superior shoreline or the Gooseberry River.

To get the most out of your visit, stop by the Joseph N. Alexander Visitor Center where you can find park information, interpretive displays, a park video, Nature Store, and more. Don't miss the Gateway Plaza for outdoor interpretive signs on area resources and history.

Do be prepared to hike! It doesn't take long to get to waterfalls. There are a lot of steps.

They get bigger and bigger.

What I liked just as much as the waterfalls is the tree trunks. They twist and turn.

The kids loved exploring down below.

And the boys bonded.

That looks like a lot of fun. We plan to get out exploring more soon, but we need it get cooler first. Love the roots pic!!!!

Your boys look so grown. I love the pictures of them on the rocks. I want to go see a real waterfall. I've seen man-made ones. I don't think I've seen a real one...except Ruby Falls, underground, which was cool. :)

What a beautiful place. It looks so peaceful. I know it's a place my family would love to spend a day walking though and exploring.
