Rice Lake Rapids

Quick pit stop to visit Rice Lake Rapids (aka Rice Lake Falls) still on the Turtle River just upstream from where I was at Lake of the Falls.  Parking very quickly on the shoulder to take some pictures – please be mindful this is surrounded by private land and do not trespass.

Upstream view of the rapids.  Doesn’t look like much but it does drop several feet.

Downstream views show a little more turbulence but overall are very tame.

Downstream beyond the rapids and in the surrounding area are quite beautiful.  Most of Iron County is quite sparsely populated and dominated by forest lands.


Short clip of the falls.  Admittedly not my best work but you get the idea.  Enjoy!
