Tahquamenon

At Tahquamenon (one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi,) you get two, two, two falls in one. The Upper more stately falls has a drop of nearly 50 feet and is more than 200 feet across .  The Lower , about 4 miles downstream is   a series of five smaller falls cascading around an island.

Carl left the campsite about 10 pm in search of the Milky Way and possible Aurora Borealis. He started at the Lower Falls  then the Upper Falls and eventually Whitefish Point. He heard from others that the northern lights were very visible just before he went out….oh well, her saw some signs of color in the sky and was also able to capture some great Milky Way shots. In the mean time, I was able to stay snug as a bug in Seymour.

Friday morning, before breaking camp and heading home we explored the Lower Falls.

This was a fun spur of the moment adventure……so glad we went!
