There is a lot of wilderness up there and we drove sometimes for miles and miles without seeing so much as a single house! We got off-course in Escanaba and ended up taking some back roads to get back to where we needed to be. We saw a doe and her fawn cross the road in front of us. That's pretty much it as far as wildlife goes!
Stopped for lunch at Fumee Falls Roadside Park. We've been here before and it's a nice place to have lunch!
There is another falls behind this one that you can barely see in this picture.
After we drove a few more hours we veered north to our first destination:
I've been wanting to come here for years and was very excited to see this.
It's just a short walk on a paved trail to the falls, and you can hear that rushing water as soon as you get out of the car. Music to my ears!
They were as beautiful and majestic as I knew they would be!
You can take stairs all the way to the top of the falls and the river leading up to them is just as beautiful with mini-falls along the way! It goes way farther back than we could go, too!
I literally could have stayed there all day!
See that happy smiling face! Ug,.. never mind...don't look at me..look at the beautiful waterfall behind me!
I'm sure it's very beautiful but this was the best we could see of it because it was kind of a steep slide down to the river and we didn't want to risk of life and limb! I've seen pictures of it and it is beautiful. Looks a lot like Bond Falls.
Unfortunately we still had some driving to do so we got back on the road after a hour or so.
