Earlier this week Jessica and I were in Ely, MN "playing tourist" for a day. We had a great time walking the main street of Ely and checking out such places as the Brandenburg Gallery, the Piragis Northwoods Company store and the Steger Mukluks store. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch at "A Taste of Ely", a very nice local cafe that also features live music and a small art gallery. The first item on our agenda for that day, however, was a hike to Kawishiwi Falls, a beautiful waterfall located just a few miles outside of town. The hike to the waterfall was easy, winding through a very nice forested area. Even though it was a very overcast day we were lucky enough to have some nice definition in the cloud cover, making for a nice shot from near the base of the falls. I would highly recommend the easy hike to this waterfall if you are ever in the Ely area!
