Wednesday Waterfall: Tahquamenon Falls with Fall Color

The big one: Upper Tahquamenon Falls with fall color
Wednesday Waterfall: Upper Tahquamenon Falls is the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi but when seen within the enormous surrounding landscape of the wild Upper Peninsula it doesn't seem all that big here. The Tahquamenon River is a moody, dark and deep river draining a huge swath of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Its waters are stained with the tannin of cedar swamps along its route and tell tales of musky, lumberjacks and birchbark canoes. The falls is the most popular part of the river and the key feature of a large state park, but the whole river is worthy of exploration, especially in fall.
