A one mile loop trail went through the forest leading to Kawishiwi Falls. The night before there had been a thunderstorm with fierce winds. So, I was a bit worried of what I might find in the dense woods.
Sure enough, there were downed trees across the path in several spots. Some scrambling over, around or beneath them was required to continue. It was a good thing that a portion of the trail was on a narrow boardwalk, because there was much standing water.
My efforts were rewarded with a raging waterfall viewed from the edge of a rocky cliff. I spent awhile photographing from different viewpoints, and admiring the plunging waters, before returning to Tardis.
Afterward, I went to lunch in Ely at the Subway, as it was the only café in town that had electricity restored. Then, I headed southward to find my campsite along the river.

Wow, what spectacular waterfall pictures! I understand what you mean about the downed trees and such after bad storms. It’s been that way in northern Iowa, too. What a treasure you found by traversing the obstructions!
It was a fantastic waterfall, which was probably helped by the recent rain. Glad I made the effort getting through the trail to see it.
