I took a lot of photos, so I'll post them over two days. For this blog update, I'll include the pictures I took while walking from the parking lot to the bluff. I had the hike all to myself -- didn't see another human being.
Fall colors are definitely late this year, but there are a few trees that have turned.
Into the sand dunes...
To the bluff...
Although the sun is setting "behind" Au Sable Point, I was able to still get some nice photos.
Two fishing boats drove by heading back to Grand Marais. I was able to zoom in to get a couple of photos...
I decided to descend and walk the beach back to Sable Falls steps. The photo below shows where I usually go down. I have never seen so much erosion. This was not a safe way down as some of the eroded crevices were over my head.
While contemplating whether it was safe for me to go down the dune, I captured some more photos.
Just to the west was another area that looked a little more safe. This is where I headed down.
