Last week I spent about half a day exploring both sides of the Cascade River between Highway 61 and County Road 45 in Cook County, MN. I had been to both ends of this section many times before, but never hiked all the way up one side of the river and all the way back down the other side. It was a cool hike and a challenging one. My GPS showed a distance of about 9 miles with a total ascent of just over 2,000 feet. I photographed several waterfalls along the way, some (like the one shown here) I had never been to before. I also recorded a lot of video segments which I've put together into a video compilation. I will be sharing the video later this evening.
