Nerstrand Big Woods State Park

I spent a few hours on Saturday hiking in Nerstrand Big Woods State Park, just outside of Nerstrand, Mn.....



The weather was just about perfect, and while the volume of water flowing over Hidden Falls wasn't huge, it did allow me to take the tripod right out into the middle of the creek to get some "head-on" shots.....




Also, as dumb luck would have it, I just happened to be there when the Trout Lillies were blooming. I guess the blooms themselves have a very short life span, so it was nice to have happened to have been there when they were in full bloom.....


7) They were everywhere.....

8) I think I read that they were call "Trout" Lillies because the speckeled pattern on their leaves resembled a trout.....

9) Time to head for home.....

Thanks for looking.....

Thanks Bob. I think once it gets all leafed-out it'd be a very nice place to spend some longer term time. I'll head back down there this summer at some point, and report back with some more shots of it in "full canopy".
I know they have camping there - as people actually had tents pitched in several of the spots as I wandered the trails. I'm pretty sure they had accomodations for "big rigs" as well - so if you're ever up this way again.....
