Waterfalls were a theme this week for photographers, that’s for sure. Here are just a few of the images that were posted in the last three days:
Even small streams looked like they were carrying spring run-off.
Lake Superior was “talking” a little, too.
Sunrises and sunsets were pretty incredible, too. Here’s a selection.
We also had our first dusting of snow. Travis Novitsky documented this in two lovely images.
Winter still hasn’t really arrived, though. Here’s proof. This photo was taken on Nov. 18 last year.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
For years I’ve shared stories about our golden retriever Fearless. Longtime readers— those who started reading Unorganized Territory more than 14 years ago—may remember that Fearless came to us as a Father’s Day gift from our son Gideon and his wife Sara.
The roly-poly puppy was to make up for the fact that they had taken our family dog— Gideon’s dog, Gizmo—away from us to their new home. The puppy had big paws to fill as we all adored Gizmo. But he quickly won our hearts with his silly antics, especially his anxious attitude. He was a nervous little pup, afraid of rustling garbage bags, balloons and of course, the vacuum cleaner.
For that reason, we decided to give him a strong name— Fearless. We thought he would grow into it. He eventually did, but not before I wrote a few columns about his fearfulness.
In April of 2002, when he was just a year old, I bragged that Fearless had easily slept through a major thunder and lightning storm. Of course there was a reason. He was tired from a terribly traumatic hike. We had taken our poor little dog, who trembled when you shook a trash bag before putting it in the garbage can, on a stroll on County Road 7. Unfortunately, some Good Samaritan had collected litter along the road. It started off as a very slow walk with Fearless cringing and pulling at the leash as we passed the first few bags. He eventually realized that the bags were inanimate and we were able to finish the walk, but not without a lot of laughter at his expense.
I wrote about his anxiety issues again in a column in January 2009, just after the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. Because Fearless had so much energy, I thought he might be sled dog material. I decided to see if we could teach him to pull a sled around the yard to give the grandkids a ride. I started with something I thought would be simple—a little yellow toboggan left at our house by the kids. I carefully hooked the plastic sled to his collar and attempted to get him to walk beside me. It did not work. I forgot about the fear factor.
The sliding toboggan following him terrified him and he took off running, looking back frantically, his eyes filled with fright at the yellow thing chasing him.
It took several minutes to stop him and to get him untangled. It took several more minutes to get him to calm down. I decided he wasn’t cut out to be a sled dog. But it did make me laugh and it made for a good story for a mushing season column.
One year in a Halloween column I admitted that Fearless and I are both a bit cowardly. I shared my apprehension about being home alone. You would think having a big dog would help, but no, sensing my nervousness made Fearless skittish and he would bark at every little noise, scaring me even more. He would walk so close to me that the real danger I faced was tripping over him and breaking a limb.
I’ve mentioned Fearless in many more columns, telling readers about the difficulty of building a snowman with the grandkids when you are waylaid by a 70-pound dog who wants to roll around in the snow with you. I’ve written about his jumping on board Chuck’s four-wheeler and traveling the trails with us. I still chuckle when I remember writing a column about him stealing my mother’s walking stick.
The last time our old guy got a mention was last March, when he went for a nice long walk along County Road 7, where once a trash cleanup had scared him. I was amazed on that warm spring day that he made it as far as he did, huffing and puffing, but with a happy golden retriever grin on his gray muzzle.
I wondered, at that time, if we would be losing him soon. After all, he was almost 14 years old and that is old for a golden. He made it a few more months. On Halloween, we said farewell to our sweet old Fearless.
We knew it was coming, so all his human and canine friends came to say goodbye. He was too weak to jump up and bark in welcome, but he managed that happy golden smile as everyone— our kids, grandkids, my parents and friends—came to give him one last treat, to pet him and tell him one last time, “Good boy.”
At the end, he truly was fearless.
It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.
Someone found a camera on a portage in the BWCA and wants it to find its owner. Here’s the scoop from Kare 11!Camera lost in BWCA needs its owner Dana Thiede, KARE 3:47 p.m. EST November 16, 2015
HASTINGS, Minn. – If a picture is worth a thousand words, a camera that was dropped in the Boundary Waters late last summer has a lot to say.
A man from Hastings was walking a portage between Low and Dry Lakes over Labor Day weekend when he found a camera in a camouflage waterproof case laying in the trail. The camera inside is a white Nikon Coolpix with more than 100 pictures on it, most of them chronicling the trip the owner and three of his buddies were on before he lost it. There are also some photos of a wedding the owner attended.This picture was found inside a camera lost in the Boundary Waters over Labor Day weekend. The person who found it wants to get the camera back to its rightful owner. (Photo: KARE)
The person who found it isn’t too tech savvy, so he gave the lost camera to his assistant so she could find the owner. She, in turn, contacted KARE 11. Take a look at these photos, and if you know anyone in them contact KARE 11 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll help get the camera back in the rightful owner’s hands.
With a plethora of hiking trails in Tuscarora Lodge and Canoe Outfitters’ Gunflint Trail backyard, it’s no surprise that we’re frequently asked for hiking recommendations. More often than not, hikers want to know which trail we prefer: Centennial or Magnetic Rock?
On paper, the two hikes appear pretty similar: Magnetic Rock is a 3 mile round trip easy hike, versus Centennial’s 3.3 mile moderate loop and their parking lots are kitty-corner from each other on the Gunflint Trail. I’ve made my preference for Centennial well known. While there’s nothing wrong with Magnetic Rock Trail (and the concept of a three-story tall rock that you can stick magnets to and that can spin around your compass is pretty impressive), I’ve just always found the Centennial Trail a more interesting and invigorating hike.
But sometimes, all you need to get re-excited about a destination is to completely flip around how you go about getting to that destination.
When my family was up earlier this month, we decided to get to Magnetic Rock . . . backwards. We left one vehicle at the Magnetic Rock parking lot and then all six of us piled into the truck to park at the Superior National Forest’s Border Route Trail pull-off on Warren’s Road (Gunflint Narrows Road, USFS 1347). To find the pull-off, drive down Warren’s Road about one mile, right past/through the gravel pit and then down the narrow, one-lane road a little ways. You should spy the Border Route sign just north of the small parking area which has room for two compact cars or one large pick-up truck.
The first mile of the hike cuts across a rock outcropping which offers beautiful panaramic views of Gunflint Lake to the southeast. You can spy the cliffs on Arrow and Rose Lakes at some spots on the trail in this section. Just beyond the trail on the north side lies a deep valley.
Of course, you can only walk on the rim of a valley for so long; eventually you’re going to have to go through it. We did the hike on the first sunny day after a week of drizzle and although there was only one significant wet section of about 30 feet, it was very mucky. If you do this hike in the spring or late fall, definitely wear waterproof footwear. You also might like to have a hiking stick for additional stability in this section.
Once you cross through the little slough, you’ll hike about another half mile, mostly through lower ground and then, if you’re looking carefully, you’ll be able to spy the tippy top of Magnetic Rock to the northwest.
It’s a 1.8 mile hike from the parking area on Warren’s Rock to Magnetic Rock. From Magnetic Rock, it’s another 1.5 mile hike out to Magnetic Rock parking lot on the Gunflint Trail for a 3.3 mile hike total. Past Magnetic Rock, there are several more stunning overlooks to the north, as well as many groves of healthy jack pine saplings.
This is a great hike for a big groups because you really need two cars to pull off the hike (unless you just want to get to Magnetic Rock and turn around) and because the hike never crosses into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness so you don’t need to limit your group size to nine people to comply with U.S Forest Service regulations. When you reach the Magnetic Rock parking lot, you’ll have to send two people to fetch the vehicle on Warren’s Road, but the rest of the group can continue hiking towards Tuscarora by heading down the Gunflint Trail and then cutting down the snowmobile trail that connects the Gunflint Trail and the Round Lake Road. If you hike all the way back to Tuscarora, it’s a perfect 5 mile hike.
Disney World is a magical place but is all magic good? I’m experiencing Disney right now with my daughter and niece who are both teenagers. On the way to Magic Kingdom yesterday we were listening to the radio and they were asking people to call in with their pet peeves. We had a good laugh listening to the things people came up with and it made for a fun rest of the day.
We came up with an overwhelming number of pet peeves over the course of the 12, yes 12 hours we spent in the Park. I am not a crowd loving person, I love my time alone in the woods and I like my personal space so Magic Kingdom is not the ideal place for me to spend 2 hours let alone 12 hours. I do love the idea of Disney and would enjoy the experience much more if I could rent the park out for me and my closest 30 friends. Since I can’t afford to do that, here we are.
There are a number of great websites out there for planning your Disney Trip. One even tells you the crowd levels, travel patterns, expected wait times and anything you want to know. If you’re considering a Disney vacation then I suggest checking it out. I have no clue how many people were in attendance yesterday but for me it was too many.
Back to our pet peeves. We came up with a few of them I will share, some I won’t because they might offend someone, no, they would for sure offend someone and the ones I’m sharing might too, sorry!
Phones- In a dark auditorium after the announcer tells you to turn off phones and not to use flash it is annoying to see a lighted screen. People stopping mid-stride to take a selfie is even more annoying. Someone walking smack into you because they are filming fireworks while walking is really not “OK.”
Strollers- At the beginning of the day only a triple stroller or a big kid in a stroller caught our attention but by the end of the night any stroller became a pet peeve because you feared being ran over by the ragged parent pushing it.
Motorized Carts- In the morning only people trying to run us over and then making it look like it was our fault bothered us but by the end of the night just the sight of one had us running the other way because we knew some of those people were really trying to run us over.
Swords & Light Sabers- Kids wielding sabers pretending they are a jedi are cute in the morning even when they poke you in the face 6 times but when the sun is gone and the moon is high bring one out and you might “rhymes with dye.” Some of those cute kids look different beneath the light of the moon and it isn’t a good look either.
So, there are a few of our Pet Peeves we accumulated at Magic Kingdom yesterday, I hope you enjoyed them. Today is another day and we’ll see what sort of Disney Magic we experience today.
A semi carrying an 18,000 gallon LP tank showed up on site today. Using two Boldt cranes, we were able to lift the 45,000 pound tank and set onto the support saddles. The crane pick took less then 15 minutes.
A lot is happening on-site. Inside the mechanical room, the concrete pads for the three new boilers were poured and the boilers set in place. The electricians have run a number of conduits and stubbed up into the mechanical room. The BOLDT crane has arrived on site to set the wooden roof trusses for the Care Center additions. The earthwork crews continued to backfill both the north and south side Care Center additions.
Polk told regulations enforcement officer that “Rich Thornton is ridiculous and it is known by everybody.

PS: the reason why that I took the photography of the cave access from 50-feet away and 20-feet down hill was that there is MAJOR Mama Bear inside. This television affair that was long-anticipated is likely to turn the archaeology occupation upside down. It completely negates three ages of textbooks on the Cherokees, published by record and anthropology teachers at the Colleges of Georgia, New York and Tn.If you’re physically healthful, your thoughts may are usually high.
The author of the skilled journal article on the genetics research defined New York Cherokees as being a Middle Eastern populace with some Native American heritage and significant European. Intense conflict was evoked by this article within the career that was archaeology. The biggest hereditary shock came from Neighborhoods District, GA, which will be instantly east of the Course Rock Ancient Area. The Monitor Rock Terrace Complex, in addition to many patio complexes revealed during 2012 in Ga, has become one of many largest historical riddles of our moment. In the late 1500s they fled to Spain because of the Inquisition. The Mayas did, certainly, come over a period of time of many decades often times to Ga. Tests that are genetic produce more debate and questions In New York, Inc. revealed a study on the detailed genetic study of the Cherokee Indian Reservation in March DNA Experts, of 2010.The budget should create the steadiness that is obvious with all the project activities.
None moved DNA patterns common of the Cherokees. The director of the adventure & executive division Polk, confirmed that that his office had led workers to reduce woods to block the walk ultimately causing the damages. No idiot was n’t raised by this son’s mom! This is unsurprising. It’s today noticed that 16th-century Spanish settlers believed the location of the Course Rock Historical Zone since the “Fantastic Metropolis of Copal,” while California Native Americans called it the ” metropolis of Yupaha.” A cash area with stone houses along with a substantial temple, privately of a mountain, is stated inside the tales of the Creek and Cherokee Indians. They fled towards the New Planet while Portugal became briefly element of Spain. Western North Carolina and north Georgia are known to have comprised Spanish-speaking Sephardic Jewish exploration colonies within the 1600s and early 1700s.An interest such as ??review?? or ??document?? is rather vague and doesn??t enable considerably.
Its intricate landscape will likely require many decades of archaeological review. The DNA checks provided proof of Mesoamerican and South American genes being not past in several Southeastern Native Americans, but additionally made several surprises. The mantra with this collection was the terraces at Monitor Steel Difference would be the burials of ” Cherokee warriors” as well as the Cherokees have generally lived in northern Georgia. Contrary to the hereditary study about the Cherokee Reservation, “card-carrying” Cherokees living in Cherokee Areas, NC and who could track their ancestry to that particular region, had hereditary pages common of Indians. The Towns District Cherokees did not take any inherited indications that advised distributed genealogy with Cherokees living towards the north 45 kilometers, to the Vermont Reservation. The evidence was always there, right facing our eyes, but only the professionals hired by the Background Route got some time to ask the proper questions and carry the best exams out. The content reported the new similarities in the current presence of Maya place names in your community, Central American, as well as the long held convention to Maya terrace processes that Mesoamerican elite had once led the Indians.Occasionally actually just “most” of these on a single site.

The Indian diary has begun because the 1200s AD. Viewers wishing to contact Thornton with queries concerning Indigenous American heritage, urban-planning or architecture may reach him at. The “Asiatic” component of their ancestry was primarily even a combination of Maya and Quechua, or both Quechua from South Usa. The Times knows he’s insane so nothing he creates wo be printed by them.” The a part of Polk’s declaration is probably off-target. Onsite researchers located stone covered channels that directed to level parts, enclosed by rock surfaces, where apparently the stored water was distributed to personal balconies from your wetlands.Recognize the value of custom writings com coupon code a view versus a.
In lots of Creeks surprise genetics structure from America appeared. The inhabitants of Yupaha Fantastic Copal or whatever their village was called by them, were determined by rain that is stored to survive. These individuals likewise maintained Tupi- DNA. The Cherokees had large quantities of genetics indicators, standard http:/www.smartessaywriter.net/ of Lebanon or historic Mesopotamia.

Practically all Southeastern Indians hold much more Local American, Caucasian genetics than they are doing.Read it out loud to ensure the tone is appropriate and the text flows.
He explained the motive was the damages “were excellent Cherokee warriors’ burials, and that persons taking photos of the plots were n’t wanted by the Cherokees.” At his or her own choice, Polk brought a man named Richard Thornton’s topic up. the Winter Solstice is begun around by the schedule that is Maya. Further research revealed the Gainesville Times can be a smalltown paper owned by the Gannett Organization. The largest Cherokee area in current day County was Tamatli. Connections that were correct were also shown by geospatial investigation with ceremonial sites or a great many other Creek villages. They are sometimes on a vector created Equinoxes or by the Solstices, or like Etalwa, on the same latitudinal or longitudinal line. None of the Neighborhoods State Cherokees had genetic users like the North Carolina Cherokees. Several of these people are customers of Cherokee Indians’ Asian Band.A new pond was discovered by the tourists.figure out how to inform the subject and thing aside.
The plaza of the acropolis at the Monitor Rock ruins and the greatest temple mound at Etalwa are both aligned to the Solstice sun. Scientists Native Americans and outdoor lovers interact Space age on engineering, inherited assessment and good ole trend -the- surface sleuthing have somewhat extended the Track Stone Patio Complex’s understanding during the past year. All the test subjects of Native American descent in Union County, GA, where Track Rock is located, were of (Creek) genealogy. Because of huge drop in readership, the magazine was recently pushed to dramatically decrease its real size. Study of the Monitor Stone Terrace Complex GA, near Brasstown Bald Mountain has extended with some breakthroughs that were wonderful, in 2012. No romance that was geospatial was shown by the Track Rock historical sector from the Colonial Time to Cherokee communities that were identified. Computer evaluation, using GIS software, has exposed that the acropolis at Track Rock Space is geometrically related to Etalwa (Etowah Mounds) – mom community of the Creek Indians, along an azimuth range developed by the Winter Solstice sun.Thus any sign around the radio could possibly be fine tuned easily, also for the average person.
There may be a sizable cistern beneath the plaza of the towns acropolis. It had been previously a nest of the Tamatli-Creeks of south Ga. Families that are numerous there consider themselves to be Cherokees.

Characters to regional newspapers show that almost all North Georgians were excited to have this kind of important historical zoom inside their process; do not associate a specific Native American group with contemporary politics; and were shocked if the U.S. Some Florida archaeologists create particular those sites to ridicule this article.Regardless of how attractive, do not cheat.
Ground penetrating radar that shows sub surface stresses rock constructions has exposed the Monitor Stone Historical Region is a lot larger than formerly assumed and functions. Around the night of November 21, 2012 the Station will introduction the brand new line, ” Unearthed.” The primary plan was recorded at many destinations in Mexico and Atlanta. Native Americans living in southwestern Virginia also were found to hold Quechua genetics. Exactly what a variation annually makes. A widely-read article inside the Examiner’s Dec 21, 2011 edition declared a huge complex of rock spoils in the Georgia Foothills. The Tamatli are believed to have spoken more Mesoamerican terms than every other Creek branch.By emphasizing the phrase quality, all of the distinction is below made.
Richard Thornton Meanwhile, into a unique “top secret” research, investigating the “Mayas in America” debate, the History Station has mixed comprehensive ventures in a return to its authentic tradition of academic brilliance. Some families termed while others named themselves Creeks, themselves Cherokees. A remark was written by one Georgia archaeologist for the Examiner article, which called it a “bunch of garbage.” An article on the dispute inside the Atlanta Journal-Structure, lined up four archaeologists, who had no history in Mesoamerican architecture certainly the Track Stone website was not Mesoamerican architecture. Just one of the archaeologists had actually noticed the Course Stone damages and he’d never been in Mexico. It was indeed, a village that is big. The typical Cherokee woman about the reservation had more Semitic DNA as opposed to average Ashkenazi (Western) Jewish woman inside the Usa. Do not listen to something he claims.In making knives from pipe instructions can be found at.
The Mayas and Creeks were equated with “unlawful aliens” and “. The significant historical region includes a huge selection of rock retaining surfaces, cairns, stone altars and ruins of stone structures. In the Cherokee language, which means Host To the Itza (Maya.) Not surprisingly, South Carolina Creek Indians and many Ga carry at the least a track of Maya genetics.

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Centers last day is Sunday the 18 of October.
I enjoyed my first season being here at Chik-Wauk Museum. You never know who is going to walk through that big sturdy door, every day I learn some new history about the Gunflint Trail.
In June we had the addition of Fluff & Duff to the neighborhood. I am sure they have already headed south for the winter they are missing such beautiful weather this October. Our second annual Shrimp Boil was a huge hit.
July we celebrated the tenth anniversary of the formation of The Gunflint Trail Historical Society and the fifth anniversary that Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center has been open with a very special sit down dinner that was catered by Guest Chef Carol Valentini of Valentini Vicino Lago.
August brought back the poplar Gunflint Woods, Winds and Strings with an afternoon of chamber music. It has been such a great event hopefully we will have it again next season.
With the threat of rain and wind we moved the Pie & Ice Cream Social indoors to the new Nature Center, thankfully the weather turned out to be another wonderful day and I believe we had over 36 pies donated for the event.
We also had guest speakers come up throughout the summer to talk about the Northwoods Archeology Projects, Wild Edibles & Invasive Species. Every Tuesday during the summer we had Kid’s Day at Chik-Wauk, we offered a variety of hands-on activities all related to the unique-history and nature of the Gunflint Trail. All of these programs you can find on either the Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Centers website or The Gunflint Trail Historical Society’s website.
Sunday, October 18 will be the last day that Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center will be open for the 2015 season. We are open daily from 10 am to 5 pm.
Next season when we open the doors on May 28 we will be happy to show off our new Nature Center as well as the temporary exhibit on Birds of the Northwoods.
An end to a great season is the pretty fall colors by Earl Falls (that is what a few people call it) located by the Seagull Guard Station.
One word describes how I felt as I watched the helicopters soar over Lutsen Mountain – Thrilled! This investment from leadership at Lutsen Mountains only reinforces the energetic growth felt throughout Cook County. In July, I completed my second year working for Visit Cook County. When I started, I thought I knew a lot about this wonderful corner of northeastern Minnesota. I have now come to realize the depth of the partnerships we share in making life here enjoyable and energized. I am delighted.AN INCREDIBLE SUMMER!
As our summer season closes, I want to highlight a few spring, summer and fall highpoints. We are all aware that Cook County offers some of the biggest and best of the midwest: tallest peak, highest waterfall, most groomed cross country ski trails, largest ski resort in the Midwest, most BWCAW entry points – you get the picture. This list is endless, and keeps on growing. Another “best” came across my desk today – Hwy. 61 from Duluth to the Canadian border was included in Mashable’s “7 Scenic Fall Foliage Drives.” And perhaps the most reputable, the title of “Coolest Small Town in America,” awarded in February to Grand Marais. We would love to hear from other business owners regarding the summer experience of 2015. We know World’s Best Donuts sold more donuts than they have since opening in the summer of 1974! We look forward to hearing many more great sucess stories as we enter the last part of 2015.MEASURING SUCCESS
Safe to say – our efforts in marketing and media relations have paid off. I, along with the Visit Cook County team, serve our tourism related economy tirelessly. Thanks to our partnership with Giant Voices and LINPR we have built a successful marketing and PR strategy that is showing results. These partnerships allow us to build upon great outreach opportunities like sharing a booth with WTIP at the MN State Fair (a complete blast) followed by a live media appearance with KARE 11.
The one true measurement of tourism success for Visit Cook County is our lodging tax. This is always a moving target as we have lodging properties that pay monthly, quarterly and annually. We measure our monthly decreases and gains based on prior year figures which actually allow us to be pretty close on the measurement. And of course, we work extra hard to bring people here in our shoulder seasons of April and November. The County collects the lodging tax and prepares all the reporting. You can see all the figures if you look here: http://www.cookcountychamber.org/charts.php?id=15
That said, Visit Cook County’s fiscal year began May 1. If you calculate the success in the first three months of our fiscal year, the statistics are astounding. A quick snapshot of May-July shows growth in Lutsen/Tofte/Schroeder up 15.9% and Grand Marais is up 15.8%. And on an even bigger scale, lodging sales in 2014 totaled $33Million dollars. In a county that records $150million in sales, we need to tip our hats to the lodging property owners – not only as economic tourism drivers but also as employers.
We hope you have saved the date to celebrate with Visit Cook County and the Cook County Chamber on November 3rd at Lutsen Resort. You can look forward to more information about the event in the coming weeks, but until then, make sure you’ve saved the date!
Just found out there’s a power outtage scheduled for 9-12 noon today. NO phones or e-mail until it’s over!
