After Whitefish Point Hal and I headed on over to see the falls that we'd visited several years earlier but which I don't really remember except for mosquitoes and taking a ferryboat to the location. We had to buy mosquito repellent on the boat and then had to walk from the boat down a series of ramps/stairs to the falls. The guy walking in front of me had no shirt on and was covered in mosquitoes but I don't remember seeing the falls at all. Very weird.
This time we drove to lower Tahquamenon Falls first, parked by the gift shop/park station and followed the trail to various lookouts.
Then we walked further up the river to Upper Tahquamenon Falls.
On the way we met several people walking back saying we'd just missed a kayaker go deliberately over the falls. Apparently there were 3 of them doing this since Labor Day. (This was the day after). However, they were not done and we got to see 3 of them do it. I managed to get shots of the blue one.
Here is the third kayaker we saw take the plunge.
And here is one more shot of Hal because I can't get enough of those. Walking up the stairs from the upper falls.
