Photographer's Note

Good afternoon everyone!! Today's photo is part 4 in my "Northstar Mountain Resort Hiking" series. Here you will see a beautiful photo of the lake, again with downed trees littered around the lake. All the downed trees had given me quite a lot of opportunities to find gorgeous settings to take some stunning photos, and this is one of my favorites. I will share my hiking trail with you by giving you my Google map tracking data. Its best that you zoom in on the hike till the trail mapping is large enough so that you can see the elevations and terrain, along with stop and go statistics. Here is that link for you to copy and paste to your browser:

This weekend is the Northstar Mountain Resort’s 5th Annual Beerfest & Bluegrass Festival. If you can go, you will have the best time of your life, not only because of the live Bluegrass music, food and beer, but you can go off hiking or take the gondolas up to the summit and listen to the music from the comfort of nature’s lounge chair, called “A LOG”. Below is some information for you if you plan or want to go.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
