Grand Marais is home to a variety of local events.

FEATURED EVENT

Unplugged Music Festival, The Northern Harvest

Fourth weekend in September “Wow!” is a common reaction to first-time attendees of the Unplugged concert. Wow, what incredible musicians. Wow, what an amazing, intimate concert. Wow, can you believe those big name performers gave a show in Grand Marais, in a tent. We agree, “wow” sums it up pretty well.

"Spring Ice and Rainbow at High Falls" It's that glorious time of year for waterfall watching along the north shore of Lake Superior! Especially at High Falls in Grand Portage State Park, arguably one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the state of Minnesota (not to mention the tallest!). This photo was taken yesterday morning after a stretch of several cold days where the high temperature was in the mid to upper 30's. The colder temps meant that at night the spray from the waterfall was freezing to everything that it landed on, coating everything along the gorge walls in a thick layer of ice. It makes for a beautiful scene on a sunny morning thanks to the added effect of a rainbow! I used a 6-stop neutral-density filter to slow down the exposure to 2 seconds and blur the movement of the water. The forecast is looking pretty nice for the weekend so better head up the shore and check out the waterfalls! If you enjoyed this photo, please hit the "Share" button!
