I took a weekend backpacking trip with some friends into Crosby Manitou state park in Northern MN. This park is unique compared to others in Minnesota in that it is a single use park - hiking only with 16 remote backpacking campsites.

The most well known feature of this park are a set of falls known as "The Cascades" found near the North end of the park.

Another point of interest I found after a little exploration was an un-named set of falls off the beaten path. You could only reach these by taking an un-marked spur trail to a steep, rocky (dangerous) decent into the Manitou River valley. My tripod couldnt make it down this chute so I had to bump the ISO to get the depth of field I wanted, but I still like the end result:

If I've managed to hold any of your attention this far, here is a shot of our campsite (three tents behind me) showing the place we spent a couple rain soaked nights cooking, talking, drinking and generally carrying on:

Thanks for looking!

Camping in the rain is always a blast, and one reason I now have a motor home. Good job on the falls.

I went out of town shortly after posting this - thanks, good to hear from you again.

As for the camper thing, I'm old enough to appreciate and yearn for the comforts of a camper but young enough to have enough foolish pride to keep me in a tent in the back country. :)
