Sundew Pond at Lake Bemidji State Park

Hints of fall are seen in nature’s colors on the Sundew Pond.  I took a walk just before sunset and couldn’t help but anticipate what I would see as I headed down boardwalk toward the floating overlook.

It was perfect timing for the perfect spot. The golden light of the sunset emphasized the emerging golds in the tamarack and grasses surrounding the pond.

Brightly colored flowers are becoming harder to find, but berries,  mushrooms and frogs still abound on the Fish Hawk Trail that leads to and from the Sundew Pond.

By the time I returned to the boat landing area where I left the car, the final colors of  a beautiful sunset over Lake Bemidji glowed across the lake.Sunset at boat landing at Lake Bemidji State Park
