Canyon Falls

Canyon Falls was an awesome way to spend a few hours hiking.  My daughter and I climbed all over the canyon and gorge, taking in every aspect in the short amount of time we had to explore the area.


This is a small roadside park, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that one might miss if you were just driving past. Nothing about it screams put the brakes on and stop. Matter of fact, we almost didn’t.

It looks like every other county road bathroom pit stop. At least from the road there really isn’t anything to see. A few picnic tables and bathrooms.

Canyon Falls and Gorge


Oh, but, YES!  Do stop!  It’s Impressive. Even if you have a half an hour when traveling through the area, this is one stop that deserves at least a half an hour.

 

Canyon Falls and Gorge -2


Rock ledges, trails, waterfalls and a river that has carved out a rock canyon. Just beautiful!

 

I would never have expected such beauty was a short walk down a tree covered path in the woods.

We stopped in the morning, but as a photographer I will tell you it is not the stop to make in the morning. This place deserves your full attention in late afternoon sun.


 

Canyon Falls and Gorge - 3


The sun wouldn’t interfere with your pictures at that time. Otherwise, the sun is just glaring into your lens at every turn.



 


But, again; that didn’t much matter.  It was fun to explore.

 

Thanks for exploring with me! See you back here next Monday…
