Watery Wednesday



Today's contribution to Watery Wednesday is Palisades Cliff located in Silver Bay, Minnesota. The ending of the movie, "The Good Son", with Macauly Culkin, was filmed here.



Taking a scenic drive north on highway 61 is a pull off to the Palisades Cliffs. There is a single, winding road that goes up a hill and a small parking lot at the top. The rugged, sheer cliffs overlook Lake Superior. The water is clear and cold. Storm clouds were gathering over the water that day. On a clear day you can see all the way over to Wisconsin.

How beautiful of a scene is that!?!??! It's gorgeous & I can certainly see why they picked that spot to film a movie.

Nice picture Pat. We went to Minnesota for the first time this past May. I could not believe that beautiful Lake! Now, I will have to go look up where your picture is, in case we get to go back.

How are the dogs?
