More Scenic Shots from the Woods!

Today, we continue with more waterfall shots
scenic shots from this autumn splendor in the U.P. of Michigan.

Many, many places are like this in the U.P.
Sometimes the falls aren't even marked as falls.
You may be riding down a dirt woods road and come across a bridge and look down
and see this:

And if you follow the river banks down a ways,
you almost always find more cascading falls:

Or large rocks with deep crevices where the water flows down from:

I can never pick a favorite.
I love each and every one of these places:

It would be like picking a favorite child
out of all of your children!:

And if waterfalls are not your favorite thing in nature,
there are a zillion little ponds
out in the middle on nowhere
to marvel at the autumn's reflections in:
(Did you notice the little rowboat on the far shore here? Wonder who owns it?)

Another pond out in the wild.
Love the contrast of the pine trees against the bright orange trees here!:

Ponds of beautiful color

I hope you find color in your life
today, too....
