The warmer weather this week has one favorite North Shore attraction roaring and running high.

Gooseberry Falls, north of Two Harbors, is thundering.

Park officials say Tuesday's sunshine melted a lot of snow in the woods, making for quite the moving water Wednesday. Plenty of visitors came to check it out.

"Gooseberry is one of our favorite stops when we do come up and my son suggested that today would be a good day. This is way beyond our imagination," said Betty Brat of Saint Paul.

Brat said last year she didn't see the falls when they were running high, so this was quite the treat.

There is still some packed snow on some of the trails to the falls, but you can still get up close to the raging waters.
