Past peak but still beautiful!

The fall colors may be past their peak but that doesn't mean it isn't still worth it to get out and go for a hike!  The landscape is still beautiful even though the leaf color is dwindling with each passing day.  This particular view is from the 270 overlook, which is basically where the Superior Hiking Trail ends near the Canadian border in Cook County, MN.  The river that you can see in the distance is Swamp River, which flows north into the Pigeon River.  The Pigeon River is the international boundary between the United States and Canada.  No matter what the season, this is a worthwhile spot to hike to, as you can see for miles when looking South, East or North.
