Lake Itasca

This lake has a unique three armed shape that made for an interesting pendant design that its wearers love. The first person that requested this particular lake has a wonderful history that connects her to this amazing place, and I was so happy to be able to bring it to life for her. Lake Itasca is home to the headwaters of the Mississippi River and resides in a Minnesota state park of over 32,000 acres and more than 100 lakes. It is a paradise of hiking, biking, and scenic trails, towering pine forests and waters perfect for kayaking, fishing, and boating. Anyone who loves the outdoors, especially out in the fall months up north, needs to spend time here.

The colors have just started to turn vibrant up north and it was definitely boasting some fantastic scenery despite the stubborn rain clouds. One could easily spend weeks exploring all of the lakes and trails in that park. It is well worth a visit or five. We went kayaking directly on Itasca and visited lakes all along single lane through-road. And while I was too chicken to climb the fire watch tower, I’m sure the views from the top are breathtaking. Even just lounging on the dock and enjoying the crisp fall air would be a great way to spend the afternoon.img_20160925_165523

If you have ever spent time at Itasca, then I know you’ll wear this with fondness. Find this piece in my Shop.img_20160926_224251
