Today we check out two different Falls, a lake and logging in the woods. We start out with Peggy Riemer back in 2000, at Bond Falls in Ontonagon. She didnít find much color there that year, except the green of the evergreens surrounding the falls.
Bob Gilreath was at King Lake near Covington in 2004. Typical of this time of year, the cooler mornings create a steam on the surface of the water, giving an ethereal effect, which separates the actual scene and the reflection in the water nicely.
Weíre heading into the woods for the 2015 photo, snapped by Henry Sakari. He had his camera along at a Keweenaw logging jobsite recently and shared this photo he snapped of a TimberPro log processor at work. It cuts the tree, removes the branches, cuts it to length and finally sorts the logs into bundles for the Forwarder to bring to the landing for the log truck drivers.
Our current photo for today, comes from Chris Beaudoin, who was here UP North for a visit with his son and a friend a few weeks back. They explored the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness, accessed via Forest Road 2200 that runs north out of Sidnaw. The photo here is of the Sturgeon Falls, which was roaring full-tilt with all the rain runoff.
To go along with the logging photo featured today, we have a video published by Explore M123 about the Tahquamenon Scenic Byway, which is a 63-mile journey through Michiganís Eastern Upper Peninsula. The Byway is rich in both logging and maritime history. In this video, youíll learn the story of how both industries were interconnected and important in the building of many Midwest cities
