Gooseberry Falls State Park: Fifth Falls Loop

It was flurrying as we got into the car and headed up the North Coast. However, we lucked out and by the time we arrived at Gooseberry Falls State Park the clouds had parted and the sunshine and blue skies made their presence felt. We hiked upstream along the Gooseberry River to Fifth Falls and then back downstream on the opposite side of the river. When we got back to the visitor center area, we checked out the Middle and Lower Falls on the Falls Loop Trail.

After our hike was over we were hungry, so naturally we headed over to Betty's Pies for lunch. I got some cherry pie for dessert while Noelle opted for the Bumbleberry. Both were delicious. From Betty's, we headed south on 61 to Flood Bay wayside where we looked for Lake Superior Agates. We found many small ones, but no large ones. Another great day in the great outdoors.
