Solo trip chasing waterfalls and fall colors (water-fall-colors)

I had a couple days of PTO from my day job, and made the most of a four-day weekend.  I took the trailer up to a friend's property on Lake Superior, just outside of Bayfield, Wisconsin.  On the way up and back I visited six state parks in three states.
