As many of you know, my log home is located in beautiful northern Michigan. Another place equally beautiful is the Upper Peninsula. I want to show you a piece of this wilderness - Tahquamenon Falls which is located in Paradise, Michigan. (Seriously, that's the city's name.)
Betsy (of Joyful Reflections) and her husband George (of Senior Moments) love waterfalls and have shared many lovely photos of their trips on their respective blogs. I dedicate this post to them. (P.S. They are 2 of the nicest blogger people you could ever meet!)
Tahquamenon Falls State Park is approximately 52,000 acres and the main attraction of this park is the Tahquamenon Falls of course! The upper falls is one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. It has a drop of 50 feet and is more than 200 feet across.
These photos I'm showing you are of the Lower Falls which is comprised of 5 falls around an island. The Park itself is beautiful to walk through and offers all sorts of great activites such as camping, hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing and much more. They also have a great variety of wildlife - especially the birds. I saw my first hummingbird here!
Hope you enjoyed this part of Northern Michigan! You all come back, ye hear!
(I've always wanted to say that!)
