A beautiful afternoon on one of my recent hikes in the Gunflint Trail area of northeast Minnesota. This was taken along the Daniels Lake Trail, accessed from Clearwater Road. I made this photo on the return leg of a long 15-mile hike. It had been pretty cloudy for the majority of the hike with minimal sunshine, but that changed on the last few miles of the hike. When I got back along the Daniels Lake shoreline the clouds were beautiful. Hard to believe this photo was taken in mid October; it looks more like summer!
