With an early start, the first stop we made was at Miners Falls. It's a pretty short walk to a nice waterfall just south of the famous rock formation that makes Miners Castle.
Just up the road was Miners Castle, so we headed over there for a nice view of Lake Superior and some pretty impressive rock formations.
We decided to do most of our hiking at Mosquito Falls, which is by the more popular Chapel Falls. Maybe it was the time of year, but there were no mosquitos while we were out and about.

The path felt a lot longer than it was, mostly due to climbing up and down rather than going along a flat path. Parts of the path were muddy, but overall it wasn't too bad. It was certainly more rugged than I'd anticipated.

The view was beautiful along the way almost the entire way - with one exception. The pit toilet. Had I known that the horrible, scary bathroom I used was right next to a cleaner pit, more enclosed pit toilet, I would have been a lot happier. Lesson of the day? When in doubt, walk another twenty feet.
But the whole long hike to Lake Superior was worth it. The view where Mosquito River dumps into the lake was great, and since we were at the park off season, there were virtually no other people.

Anyway, here's a link to more photos of our trip: Pictured Rocks

Also, Chris has a post with different photos on his blog too.
