Tahquamenon Falls - Upper Falls (Panoramic) #2

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 9 November 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The Tahquamenon Falls are two different waterfalls on the Tahquamenon River. Both sets are located near Lake Superior in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The water is notably brown in color from the tannins leached from the cedar swamps which the river drains. The upper falls are more than 200 feet across and with a drop of approximately 48 feet. During the late spring runoff, the river drains as much as 50,000 gallons of water per second, making the upper falls the third most voluminous vertical waterfall east of the Mississippi River, after Niagara Falls and Cohoes Falls, both in New York State.

The Lower Falls, located four miles downstream, are a series of five smaller falls cascading around an island which can be reached by rowboat. A hiking trail runs between the falls along the riverside, and visitors often play in the lower falls during the summer heat.

The falls are within Tahquamenon Falls State Park, between Newberry and Paradise, Michigan. They are a popular tourist destination in the Upper Peninsula during all seasons.

I love how the person on the right adds a nice sense of scale. A six-shot panoramic photo captured October 2, 2016.
