I suspect most states have an “Up North”. Here in Minnesota I think it is North of Minneapolis. In my case, it is the North Shore of Lake Superior. If you have not been, imagine as you crest a hill in Duluth, MN, Lake Superior appears as far as you can see. She is maybe smooth and glimmering or tumultuous with waves crashing to shore. As you drive further North you see more evergreens quaking aspen and paper birch. Maybe you will see an eagle soaring overhead or other birds of prey. If you are really lucky you will see a moose! The scenery turns to rock cliffs, waterfalls and rivers. Inland lakes abound and one of the coolest things is the islands dotting the lakes peppered with pine trees.
August of 2021 my 13yo and I took a trip up to stay in a yurt on Pincushion Mountain just outside of Grand Marais, just 60 miles south of the Canadian Border. We stayed for a week and enjoyed hiking, the waterfalls and rock hunting on the shores of Lake Superior. Good books were read, laughter was had and memories were made. I even found some time to paint in the early mornings while my son slept.
This collection is inspired by that trip. I hope you find something that speaks to you.
