High Water: The Power Of Nature

Heavy Rains Produce Raging Rivers

It has been a cold rainy May here at the head of Lake Superior. But with the rains come high waters and the chance to do a little photography.

The high waters have attracted spectators; I was told by a resident that the St. Louis River has not been this high since 2002. I feel fortunate to make images of the river and hope that you will enjoy my attemps at videography.

 

Jay Cooke State Park has breath taking scenery: lush forest, rocky gorges, and with the rains a raging St. Louis River. The first video was shot at park headquarters near the famous "Swinging Bridge".

The second video was shot in the town of Thomson at a dam used to control the river for recreation and electic power generation, a few miles upstream from the park. The power of the river here is truely amazing.
