This is Part Two of a set of photographs from my hike on the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan of the U.P. of Michigan, along the desolate shores of Lake Superior.
Here is another awesome tree mushroom we saw along the hike:
And, the top shelf of the Montreal River waterfall, that pours into Lake Superior:
Boy, was I pooped!
But we rested and sat along the mouth of the river, just admiring its glory.
Then, after getting a second wind, we decided to hike up even farther to see the set of the upper falls of the river.
This is a shot of the river flowing along on our hike up to the second set of falls:
We had some steep hills to climb and I was wondering if it would be worth it.
But then, finally...
through the trees, we spotted the upper falls!:
Yes, ...I hear you telling me it WAS worth it.
And, you are right.
Here is another picture out in the open of this beautiful set of falls:
So, now, we had to hike back.
But, not to worry...because look at the view as we hiked back to our car!:
We made it back late in the afternoon.
Thirsty, hungry and happy.
We decided to all drive back to my brother's camp on Lake Medora, which was about 10 miles away. I just happened to have baked a homemade apple pie (ahead of time) for that exact moment....
Let's just say, an apple pie never tasted SO GOOD!!
It will be a memory we will all remember for a long while.
(Especially my muscles and back).
But, did I tell you yet that it was totally worth it???
