The Lower Tahquamenon Falls

Last weekend, we visited a few sites in the Upper Peninsula of the state of Michigan. Here are some pictures of the Lower Tahquamenon Falls. There are about 5 lower falls

  1. South Lower Tahquamenon Falls: We just saw them from a distance. One can actually go very close to them. South Lower Tahquamenon Falls
  2. North Lower Tahquamenon Falls: We saw these in more details. Here is a long distance view. You can rent a boat from just where I took this photo. Then take the boat across the river. On the left are the southern falls and on the right are the northern falls. You can walk right into the falls. We decided to walk around the river to reach the northern set of falls.

  5. Close-up of North Lower Tahquamenon Falls: A plague indicates that the most asked question is about the color of the water. It says that the amber color of the water is caused by tannin from the pine trees in the swamps drained by the river. The water is so soft that it leads to a large amount of foam at the bottom of the fall. Close-up of Lower Tahquamenon Falls
