Taken on our first trip to Duluth together, some years back with a Mamiya 7II and 80mm lens. A structure known as the crib. A beautiful old Northwoods city with a stellar art district and interesting shops. Two hours from Rauhallinen Farm. The cutting of next year's firewood will be done by the end of Saturday, weather permitting. On Sunday, as much as I detest the mud and grime of spring, I will take advantage of the thaw to visit the bottom of Rainbow Falls on the Black River. The spring melt brings a huge torrent to the Black River, such that you cannot hear yourself think over the din. Makes for a once a year photo opportunity for a few weeks. Will bring the race snowshoes, in case the snow remains on the steep climb down to the river edge below the observation deck.
“It is a strange thing that the human species can only go three days without water and three weeks without food, before the body dies. Yet, so many people can go years hanging onto pain and feeling emotionally dead inside. I suppose if it was the other way around more people would go to school to be morticians because of the booming business, or pastors would have to hand out Valium with the sacrament, just to keep the census high.”
