Tahquamenon Falls, Michigan
I have many good memories of visiting Tahquamenon Falls, located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I remember racing my dad up and down the wooden steps and then being mesmerized by the power of the falls. We visited when I was kid and again as a teenager. This was my first trip back since the mid-1990s.
Tahquamenon Falls actually consists of an upper falls and lower falls, both housed within the confines of a state park. We did some hiking around the falls, although we did cheat and took the car on Highway 123 between the upper and lower parts.
Oh, popular question: why does the water going over the falls look brown/yellow? It’s the tannins coming from the trees in the water.
