Taana Kalliainen made a visit to the Canyon Falls, just outside of L'Anse and she was kind enough to take us along, beginning with the map showing the trail, to the boardwalk that takes you closer to the falls. Once you make the hike, you're rewarded with sights like the last three photos from Taana. From the silky waters flowing over, to the racing, bubbling, fury in the last two, you get the feel for the power of these falls. I bet if you lean in close and are real quiet, you could hear the water rushing by. :->

Awesome photos Taana!!! J
I can't even count the number of times I have been back to Canyon Falls studying the rocks there....

Nice, nice, very nice and thanks for taking us along! Did I mention that these are nice pics?

Love this spot. We have a really nice picture of our two youngest and our nephew taken in one of these spots. It's a great place!!

Greetings:

Baraga County has many scenic waterfall areas. I'm still undecided if Mother Nature is slowly taking them all back or if lack of funds is causing them to simply become overgrown.

For me, back in the vacuum tube era, there was an unusual rock formation East of Laurium, the Natural Wall. Has it been photographed recently or is the land now private - as in keep out?

I have photos but they are on 127 color film negatives back when the trees surronding the Natural Wall had less than 1 inch trunk diameters.

JT.

Yep, you're right Mary, I hear 'em! ;> Beautiful!


By Helen in the U. P.! (Lahelo) on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - 09:28 am:

Beautiful pictures! A worthwhile walk to those beautiful falls. Mary, you & Shirley are so right, anyone would be able to hear them.

JT would like to hear more about that Natural Wall. And Capt. Paul you must have had some really interesting places to go to as part of your work!?


By Tanya Walstrom (Missskippy) on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - 11:18 am:

The land that the natural wall is on is privately owned.


By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - 11:33 am:

Sad to say Tanya is correct; Natural Wall is on private property. However, if youíre willing to take a long hike, you can still access the Wall by walking up the stream that flows beside of it from Cemetery Road. The only problem is you would have to come back down the stream as well. I havenít been back there in a number of years but the last time I was it was getting pretty well grown over and the elements are taking their toll as well. Somewhere in the past on here, yours truly posted an explanation of how the Natural Wall came to be; I just donít know exactly where itís located.

Youíd be surprised at some of the wild and exotic places I have been to as a geologist, Kay. The Dr. and I visited some rather interesting places when we were in Michigan this summer as well. Hopefully I can find some time to post a few pics and share a few of those interesting locations.

At higher water, my husband Nate likes to kayak here and when I was in college, there was a great place to do a little cliff jumping there too. Haven't been there in a while!


By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - 03:04 pm:

Great ones.


By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - 03:16 pm:

I'm curious now. How far from Douglass Houghton Falls is the wall? I guess I had those confused, because those falls are on private property, too, so I've been told. (I know, one is a wall and one is waterfalls, but the natural wonder on private property confused me.)


By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 - 03:34 pm:

Well isn't this interesting.....

Quake rocks Washington area, felt on East Coast

Earthquakes in Washington (D.C.) and Virginia?
Call the Department of Homeland Security, it must be a terrorist plot! (Knee-jerk, knee-jerk!)
Or just the economy collapsing?

Wow! I miss a day of pasty.com and here I am,thanks Mary! This was the first time I've made it here without being, er, knee-deep in snow. ;)


By Taana Kalliainen (Taanarae) on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 - 09:47 am:

Also, thanks everybody for the compliments! :)
