The Mighty Wilderness: Upper Peninsula

Tahquamenon Falls, U.P. Michigan by Bluejacket

Bluejacket writes: Located in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, these are the upper falls. This is the land of Longfellow’s Hiawatha. Hiawatha built his canoe “by the rushing Tahquamenaw”. The amber color is caused by tanin leached from the Cedar, Spruce & Hemlock in the swamps drained by the river.

Our photo blog, Michigan in Pictures, has a great feature with tons more photos called Sunday Study: Upper Tahquamenon Falls. Every day (except Sunday) Michigan in Pictures features a great photo of the Great Lakes State.
