My Town Monday: Miner’s Falls (Field Trip)

Last week, I wrote about the Pictured Rocks.  But the rocks on the lakeshore are not the only great natural attraction.  There are a number of waterfalls in and around the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. 
DSCN7622One of those is Miner’s Falls.  When we visited the area (about this time last year) there was still snow on the ground… and ice on the water, including the waterfalls!
DSCN7618It was an incredible sight and I’m actually quite glad we got to see this lesser-viewed condition of the falls. 
DSCN7617Pretty sure that thing across the top of the water is actually ice… it doesn’t appear in warm-weather pictures I found on the internet.  I plan to go back someday again, during warmer months to compare views. 

(I'm playing with Windows Live Writer for blog post and still figuring things out-- which is why the picture quality suffered.  Sorry!)

I love the idea of ice on a waterfall! I'm curious to hear what you think of Windows Live Writer.

@Barrie-- So far, I love Windows Live Writer. In particular, I find it so much easier to add photos and move them around in a post than the online editor. It even snagged my theme from online and I can see how everything will look upon publication while I'm working (instead of having to toggle the Preview button.) And I've only begun to play with the picture effects.

But, really, the big thing is the ease of putting pictures in my post.
