Chapel Area Hike

After returning from WI and MN, I really needed a hike. Friend, Wendy, and I decided to hike the Chapel Loop. It was a gorgeous fall day with temperatures in the 60s. We walked the trail to Chapel Falls first.

Along in our travels we spotted this tree growing inside the stump of another tree.

The fall color along the trail was inspiring.

I'm not sure how many times I have hiked to Chapel Rock. Seeing the survivor tree growing on top of the rock with roots free-spanning it over to the shoreline still gets me every time. I am amazed that the tree holds its own against the storms of Lake Superior.
