When Gitche Gummi gets her undies in a bunch, you need to give her a wide berth. Today’s (Oct. 10) high winds once again stirred up the “Big Lake” and she put on a show for those brave or foolish enough to venture near for a closer look. Waves were reported to be as high as 28 feet and much damage was done to the beaches and lakewalk. I also learned today that my current rain gear is not up to the task of these conditions and I need to carry more towels for keeping lenses dry. Ultimately I could not keep up with the spray and had to quit. I was totally soaked through my rain gear and all my camera gear needed to be dried out. Even with all that, it was, as always, an exhilarating experience.
