Lost Creek Falls
Noelle and I headed over to Cornucopia, Wisconsin again, this time to hike to the small but beautiful Lost Creek Falls. The hike began by following a grassy snowmobile trail, but soon the path became more defined and the wildflowers quite numerous. We saw trillium, lady slippers, blue-bead lilly, and a few others. The falls were in a nice secluded location; a little sandstone gorge decorated with flowers and moss.
It was a short hike, a round trip of only about 3 miles, after which we drove to the mouth of the Brule River and took a chilly walk along Lake Superior. It is cold along the lake, but interestingly just about 100 miles away temperatures are in the mid-90s.
