Siskiwit River, Cornucopia, Wisconsin

A few days ago we had a very hot and humid period in our area and I decided to escape the heat and head up north. I was dreaming of cooler temperatures at Lake Superior and possibly experiencing and photographing a sunset/sunrise. I did find the cooler temps, actually so chilly that I needed to wear a jacket and was freezing when I ate ice cream at the beach. 
Unfortunately no sunset/sunrise as it was overcast the whole time (2 days) I was there.

I found myself spending most of my time in the forest and along rivers/waterfalls in the area. As is often the case things don't work out as planned! But no complaints as I feel right at home in that environment.
I had heard about the Siskiwit River near Cornucopia and was delighted to finally spend some time there. The cloudy day was perfect for river/waterfall photography. What a charming and magical place to explore. 
There are trails on both sides of the river and I checked them all out. The view points of the following photos are from  both sides. 
I was curious about the name Siskiwit and found this definition:

freshwater fish from Lake Superior in the Great Lakes, a variety of the lake trout.

Enjoy my hike and thanks for looking, Susanne
