Temperance River

Our camp Thursday night was at Temperance River State Park.  All of the Superior Fall Races passed through the park, so it was a convenient location.  The above photo is taken from the foot bridge, looking upstream.

The campgrounds were right beside the river's mouth, which came rushing down through a narrow ravine.  At night you could listen to both the river and the surf.  The above photo is taken from an overlook back towards the foot bridge.

A close-up of the ravine.

Temperance River reputedly got its name because it lacks a gravel bar at its mouth.

Looking down the gorge towards the footbridge from the highway.
