Vacation: Part 3

WATERFALLS

Black River Falls, Ishpeming, MI
My dad and I were reading a tourist brochure about sights to see in the Ishpeming area and read about Black River Falls, which neither of us had seen before. So we thought we'd take a little time and check it out. They were okay--probably not on my list of things I HAVE to see again, but not a bad little jaunt if you want to drive way out into the woods and check it out.

Dave's Falls, Amberg, WI Driving back to Lafayette on Monday I wasn't in a hurry, so I made a stop in WI to see some falls I had heard of but never visited before. Right by Northland Baptist Bible College in the northern woods of Wisconsin are some county falls called Dave's Falls, that I found out are just off of the highway. I decided to stop and check them out. It was only about 275 yards to the falls, so there was hardly any kind of hike involved, which I was a little disappointed in (and the $3 entrance fee was a little disappointing), but the falls were spectacular. A really nice place to visit. I would recommend these to any future tourists!

Okay, Beth--I looked at your pictures on facebook and your blog page. Couldn't remember your blog address, but it came right up when I googled it.

No way. Who knew we had falls like that in Ishpeming. Not a whole lot to look at, but not bad.
Ah, so that's Dave's Falls. Nice.
Nice pics, too.
